Japan exports rise 13% to USD 59 billion in July

21 August 2017 | Tokyo


Japan's exports increased at a fast pace in July, indicating a revival in demand from China, the US and Southeast Asia, though the prices rose faster compared to the volumes for several products.

Exports rose over 13% in July to 6.5 trillion yen (USD 59 billion) compared to a year earlier, according to a data released recently.

“Trade actually dragged on growth in the world's third-largest economy in the April-June quarter but likely would provide a slight boost for the year,” said Marcel Thieliant of Capital Economic – an independent macroeconomic research firm.

Thieliant forecasts an increase of 6% in export volumes, whereas volumes of import will rise by around 3%.

In the month of July, Japan's shipments to the US rose 11.5% to 1.3 trillion yen (USD 12 billion), mainly comprising machinery, cars and car parts. Imports jumped 14% to 671.7 billion yen (USD 6.1 billion), with increase in the shipments of fish and meat.

The Country’s exports to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a 10-member bloc, also surged 18%, to 1 trillion yen (USD 9 billion), on the back strong demand for appliances and other devices.
