Japan’s September Exports Rise 11.5%

Disappointing Japanese export numbers for September show that continued weakness in the yen is failing to give exporters the boost they need, say analysts.

Japan’s exports rose a healthy 11.5 percent in September from a year earlier, but the figure was well below expectations for a 15.6 percent rise and slower than the 14.6 percent growth in August, data on Monday showed.

According to Ministry of Finance data, imports rose 16.5 percent in September, versus analysts’ expectations in a Reuters poll for a 20 percent increase.
