Japan February exports are seen surging at fastest pace since 2015

In February, Japan's exports probably ascended at the fastest pace for two years due to a softer yen as well as improving global demand, as a Reuters survey showed on Friday.

However, uncertainty over probable trade protectionist moves by America is still clouding revival prospects for the world's number three economy.

In February, exports leapt 10.6% from a year earlier, which would be the biggest revenue since January 2015 when they inched up 16.9%.

The number were probably flattered by a rebound in Asian demand, after Japan's shipments tumbled in January because of the long Lunar New Year holidays in China as well as other parts of the region. Apparently, in January, shipments had soared 1.3%.

Imports acquired 0.6% from a year earlier, dipping steeply from surge of 8.5% in January, which marked their first growth in two years.

It’s expected to produce a trade surplus of 822.0 billion yen, compared with January’s outcome of 1.09 trillion yen, as the survey of 20 analysts revealed.
