SEJONG, July 1 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's exports extended their winning streak for the eighth month in a row by expanding 13.7 percent last month on recovering world trade, the trade ministry said Saturday.

Outbound shipments came to US$51.4 billion in June, up from $45.2 billion tallied a year earlier, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

The country's exports have been on a steady rise since November led by an upturn in oil prices and recovering global trade.

Imports also soared 18 percent on-year to $40 billion in June.

Last month's trade surplus came to $11.4 billion, marking 66 straight months that the country's exports have exceeded imports, the ministry said
