Japan posted a trade surplus of ¥670.17 billion in September, up 37.7% from the same month in 2016, provisional data from the Ministry of Finance showed Oct. 19.

Exports grew 14.1% year over year in September, after rising 18.1% in August. This was the third straight month that Japanese exports grew by double digits as a recovering global demand boosted exports, Bloomberg News said.

Imports increased 12% year over year, after a 15.2% rise in August.
