Japan exports go up at the fastest pace in almost four years

In August, booming shipments of electronics and cars drove up Japan's exports at the fastest tempo in almost four years, which is further evidence that overseas demand happens to be firm enough to underpin healthy economic surge.

The 18.1% annual soar in exports appeared to be the fastest outcome since November 2013 and undoubtedly surpassed the median estimate for a 14.7% annual surge observed in a Reuters survey.

August's export outcome exceeded July's reading of 13.4% and also pointed to a ninth straight month of expansion.

Export ascend will most likely continue as the global economy is still on a sturdy footing that should back policymakers' confidence in this Asian country’s economic outlook.

The Bank of Japan is generally believed to keep monetary policy intact at a gathering ending on Thursday because inflation is still confusingly low notwithstanding data pointing to firm economic ascend.
