Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA News) - Bali`s exports of small 35 industrial, handicraft, agricultural and plantation products in the January - June 2011 period totaled US$50.8 million, a trade official said.

Head of the Exports Section of Bali`s Trade and Industry Office Putu Bagiada said here on Tuesday that the export value increased 6.9 percent compared with those in the same period in 2010 which stood at US$47.3 million.

The US importers commonly bought non-knitted garments, wood-based handicraft products, various crafts of patchwork and processed meat and fish.
