New Zealand has recorded a trade surplus, led by record-high lamb exports.
Official figures showed a surplus of $294 million in May.
Exports rose 10 percent to $5.4 billion, the second highest level for any month.
The main contribution came from meat, with lamb and beef sales to China rising.
Imports rose 6 percent to $5.1bn, led by more cars which offset a drop in crude oil and fuel.
