TOKYO – Japan achieved a trade surplus of 934 billion yen ($8.785 billion) in January, the Japanese government said on Monday.

Exports grew 12.2 per year-on-year to 6.68 trillion yen and imports increased 7.9 percent to 6.04 billion yen.

Japan had a deficit of 109.679 billion yen with China, its largest trading partner, representing a 76.8 percent decrease year-on-year.

With the world’s largest economy and its second largest trading partner, the United States, Japan saw a surplus of 349.57 billion yen, a 12.3 percent decrease from the same month of 2017.
