ZURICH, April 23 (Reuters) - Swiss exports pushed higher in March despite the franc currency's sharp rise against the euro, as surging shipments to the United States, Middle East and Asia more than compensated for a drop-off in sales to the single currency bloc.
Overall exports rose by 4.2 percent year-on-year in real terms and by 3.2 percent on a nominal basis, the Federal Customs Office said on Thursday.
