Australia retail sales growth slows

Australia retail sales rose a lower-than-expected 0.3 percent in August, while the nation’s trade surplus also missed expectations.

Retail sales climbed to AUD20.46 billion (USD19.62b) in August from AUD20.41b (USD19.55b) in July, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday.
