The country ran its third-biggest trade deficit ever in July - the equivalent of 7.79 billion euros - almost double the amount of a year ago. The weak yen and rising oil prices made energy imports more expensive, which is likely to hit company profits. However, on the other side of the coin, the benefits of the yen reduced value against other currencies were that Japan's exports rose last month at the fastest annual pace in nearly three years. Exports were also boosted by brisk sales of cars and electronics to the United States, Asia and even Europe which showed a recovery in overseas demand. Analysts expect the world's third-largest economy to head for a steady recovery, although some warn of risks such as the continued slowdown in China, Japan's biggest trading partner. "As a trend, exports are recovering and will keep growing because the positive effect of the weak yen will strengthen in coming months,"said Yoshiki Shinke, chief economist at Dai-ichi Life Research Institute in Tokyo. "Hopefully that will offset risks, notably the possibility that China's economic recovery will remain weak." The 12.2 percent rise in exports in the year to July was less than a median estimate for a 13.1 percent increase but was the biggest gain since December 2010, data released on Monday by the Ministry of Finance showed.

Japanese/Nat Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama vowed Friday to implement a new economic plan for the next five years. The new strategy - which replaces a failed economic plan begun in 1992 - calls for deregulation and other drastic changes in Japan's economic and social structures. The Japanese cabinet has completely changed its economic strategy. Over the next five years the government will try to implement big structural reforms of the economy and keep economic growth at three percent. The recommendations were contained in a 113 page document which maps out the economic future of Japan to the year 2000. Economic planners are aiming to make sure Japan remains an economic superpower into the next century. Tokyo is one of the most expensive cities in the world to live. Items like clothing, music and food are up to twice as expensive as in the United States, its key trading partner. The authors of the plan say that Japan must maintain high levels of growth to keep inflation under control and to meet the demands of an aging society. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "Toward the 21st century, Japanese society is growing older. To overcome this problem we must ensure the Gross National Product grows by three percent in the course of the coming five years. SUPER CAPTION: Takfumi Kaneko, Deputy Director General, Economic Planning Agency The government decided to formulate a new plan last year after many of the goals outlined in its previous strategy appeared unlikely to be met. The plan warns that if the economy is not deregulated - annual growth over the next five years could be limited to only 1.75 percent. Economists say the economy remains sound overall but it still needs structural reform. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think the economy is looking much better than many people abroad realise. There are many problems in Japan, however, there are many strengths here and you hear very little about those strengths. But, among them is unemployment which is still under very good control, only about 3.2 percent unemployment in Japan, half the American rate. Also the export situation is extremely strong. Exports are up about 50 percent since 1990. SOUNDBITE: Eamonn Fingleton, Author - Economist. Strong export growth over the past decade is predicted to continue into the next century. Already Japan's economy is over two thirds the size of America's and is edging forward every year.

Professor Watanabe came to his academic career with a distinguished diplomatic background, having served several appointments in Japan's foreign service, where he specialized in international trade policy. His diplomatic career saw significant engagement in all the major bilateral and multilateral trade negotiations Japan has been involved in over the past two decades. In our conversation, Professor Watanabe touches upon several of the most salient issues facing the Japanese economy and trade today, including the prospects and potential impact of ongoing WTO trade negotiations on the Japanese economy, Japan's economic engagement with Asia, the potential of a nascent ASEAN common market, and the impact Abenomics is having on Japan's trade. Finally, he touches on Japan-Canada trade relations and the prospects of an expanded Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Professor Watanabe was interviewed by Dr. Julian Dierkes of the Institute for Asian Research, UBC, with questions contributed by Francesco Duina of the Department of Sociology, UBC.

Trade ministers from the 12 nations participating in the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact held talks on the sidelines of an annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum meeting in Beijing.

Japan wants to protect sensitive goods, including beef, pork, rice and dairy, which are important to its farming sector, while the United States seeks to protect U.S. carmakers from increased Japanese competition. http://news.yahoo.com/japan-economy-minister-says-tpp-agreement-difficult-end-092310842--finance.html http://www.wochit.com

Panel Discussion organized by Elcano Royal Institute on the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement. On 1 February 2019 the EU and Japan's Economic Partnership Agreement entered into force and since then a large part of their bilateral Strategic Partnership Agreement also applies on a provisional basis. Both agreements signal the commitment of the EU and Japan to an open, fair, and rules-based international order. The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement is a new generation free trade agreement that not only opens a market equivalent to almost a third of the world's gross domestic product, but also sets ambitious standards in different areas thatcould influence future international efforts for trade liberalization. For its part, the strategic partnership agreement provides acomprehensive framework for enhanced political and sectoral cooperation on areas of common interest, including security. Elcano Royal Institute organizes a conference on 21 February 2019 gathering officials and experts from different European countries and Japan to discuss in detail the implications of these EU-Japan partnership agreements on the bilateral relation andon global governance in a context of rising international instability. Chair: José Luis Kaiser, Director General of International Trade and Investment, Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism Speakers: Belén Romana, Non-executive Director, Santander Bank Gabriel Felbermayr, Director, IFO Center for International Economics.

Since Prime Minster Abe took office at the end of 2012, he has advanced his economic policy, “Abenomics”, which is consisted of three arrows. The first arrow is aggressive monetary policy. The second arrow is flexible fiscal policy. The third arrow is growth strategy - structural reform. With Abenomics, Japanese economy has out-performed expectations of many people around the world. The Japanese economy shifted to steady growth. Prices started to rise to overcome deflationary environment. Stock prices rose 57% in 2013. However, the great performance owes a lot to monetary policy, the first arrow, whose effect may not last long. The Growth Strategy, the third arrow, is about raising the potential growth rate of Japanese economy. Prime Minister Abe announced his first Growth Strategy in June 2013 and revised it a year later in June 2014. His top priority in his revised Strategy is corporate governance. Mr. Takeshi Komoto serves as Executive Director of the Japan External Trade Organization’s (JETRO) New York Office, where he assists the President of JETRO for all the activities of the NY Office to promote trade and investment between Japan and the United States. He was seconded to JETRO from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), where he was latterly Director for FTA/EPA Negotiations, and was responsible for various negotiations including the China-Japan-Korea (CJK) FTA, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (formerly ASEAN+6), as well as the Japan-Myanmar Bilateral Investment Agreement. He also played a leading role in international negotiations and domestic coordination for the World Trade Organization (Doha Round), and APEC.

Today the market is absorbing the results of talks between crude-exporting countries that managed to agree on a crude production freeze. It is the first compromise since 2008, but many market participants are still skeptical about the decision. Economists note that commodity traders should better wait for the OPEC official summit in November in Vienna, where the agreement will be signed. Nevertheless, the news affected markets, including the currency one. In particular, the dollar-yen pair jumped today. The US dollar added 1 percent and neared the daily peak above 101.60 levels against the safe-haven yen. The pair corrected a bit to trade at 101.46 levels, still holding at highs. Currency strategists project further rise in the greenback. The yen lost its trading appeal after Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda stated that the central bank will keep struggling to reach the targeted inflation level of 2 percent. Market participants considered his comments a hint about further monetary easing through expansion of asset purchases. According to the Bank of Japan, the country’s economy is not ready yet for any changes in its monetary policy. Downbeat retail sales data revealed today only proved this. Experts linked a drop in retail sales to falling sales of clothes and home appliances. Japan’s Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry reported that retail sales shrank by 2.1 percent in August after a drop of 0.2 percent in the preceding month. Analysts had predicted a slower decline of 1.8 percent. The result indicated weakness of the Japanese economy. Economists can make only modest forecasts for the country’s economic growth in the future. So the decision made by the Bank of Japan to stand pat on the present interest rate and expand the asset buying program seems the right thing to have done. https://www.instaforex.com

Japan′s historical issues won′t be the only important topic of discussion when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe addresses the U.S. Congress next week. Economic concerns are expected to claim a part of the spotlight... with the focus on a Pacific－wide free－trade deal. With more here′s our Kwon Soa. Closer to an agreement on the Trans－Pacific Partnership， or TPP. That′s what Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is saying about Tokyo and Washington′s status on the 12－country free trade pact，... one of the main goals of President Barack Obama′s trade agenda. Abe told The Wall Street Journal on Monday local time， that gaps have been significantly narrowed， but he′s looking for more progress when he visits the U.S. next week. In regards to summit talks with President Obama slated for April 28th， ...where the TPP will be a key agenda，...Abe said he has high hopes， but acknowledged there are still hurdles. Along with Abe′s statement， two days of marathon meetings between trade and finance officials from Washington and Tokyo were held to discuss remaining challenges such as trade in agriculture and automobiles. Bilateral talks on the TPP failed to reach a deal in April last year， due to issues involving access to Japan′s rice market. For Japan， the TPP is seen as a necessary measure to restructure the country′s economy. For Washington， it′s an important counter to the China－led FTAAP，... which has the potential to become one of the world′s largest free－trade agreements. South Korea previously expressed interest in the TPP， but denied a Washington Post report last week， which claimed that Korea had made a request to join the pact. So far， there have only been three rounds of preliminary TPP talks between Washington and Seoul. Kwon Soa， Arirang News.

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish On August twenty-fourth, Moody's Investors Service lowered its credit rating for Japanese government debt. The credit rating agency downgraded Japan one step from Aa2 to Aa3. Japan's finance minister said trust in the economy "will not be shaken" by the action. Moody's said it acted because of Japan's large budget deficits and buildup in government debt since the two thousand nine global recession. Japan's public debt is twice the size of its economy. Japan has the world's third-largest economy. Moody's said another reason was Japan's political situation. Japan has had a series of prime ministers since two thousand six. Japan struggled more than many other countries after the worldwide financial crisis. Japan said its economy shrank at an annual rate of 1.3 percent from April through June. It was the third quarter of shrinkage in a row. The earthquake and tsunami in March hurt manufacturing. Shortages of parts led to a big drop in sales and profit for Toyota, the world's top selling carmaker. Yet the report on the economy was good news. Economists had expected a bigger decrease following the disasters and the nuclear crisis that followed. But there is concern that a rise in the yen could hurt growth. A high exchange value makes Japanese exports costlier and less competitive. Hours after Moody's action, Japan announced a program of one hundred billion dollars in loans to support business spending. The goal is to help weaken the yen and lift economic growth.Bond traders said Moody's downgrade of Japan was not a surprise. The action had the expected effect of raising borrowing costs for the Japanese government. Still, at about one percent, Japan enjoys the lowest borrowing costs of any major developed nation. On August fifth, another credit rating agency downgraded United States government debt for the first time. Standard and Poor's blamed the political fight over the nation's debt.Foreigners hold much of the public debt of the United States and some other countries. But ninety-five percent of Japan's debt securities are held by Japanese, mostly banks and retirement funds.For VOA Special English, I'm Carolyn Presutti.You can learn English and stay informed every day from your computer or mobile device at voaspecialenglish.com.
