Is Theroux correct?

This earlier post on Burma's trade relationships with China, India, and Singapore sent me to the WTO website for some numbers on the extent of the relationships:

In 2008 dollars:
Merchandise exports, f.o.b. (million US$) 6,937
Merchandise imports, c.i.f. (million US$) 4,288

Breakdown in economy's total imports (in 2001):
By main origin:
1. Singapore 22.9
2. Japan 13.5
3. Korea, Republic of 12.5
4. Malaysia 12.0
5. China 10.7

(Numbers for exports by destination were not available.)
