The expansion was higher than the 19.7% rise observed in March and marked the strongest result in over a year.

Annual average growth in retail sales increased from 13.6% in March to 14.1% in April. According to the survey, retailers expect sales to stay strong in May with a 20.8% annual growth rate.
