Italian Economic Diplomacy: Japan: Italian exports perform strongly in 2013

The Italian-Japanese trade figures for 2013 published by Japan’s customs authorities confirm the strong performance of Italian exports. In spite of the weakening of the yen against the euro, our exports rose by 21.8% in yen (and over 8% in real terms). This produced a trade surplus of 4 billion euros for Italy, even though our imports from Japan increased by 9.3%. Germany, by far the leading European exporter to Japan, saw little change in its position, while France, in second place, saw a fall of 10%, and the United Kingdom, in third place, a decline of 6.5%. Spain and Poland were the only EU countries to show similar growth to Italy’s, but starting from a much lower base. The main trade flows were in the chemicals-pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering and automotive, fashion and clothing, and agri-food sectors. Source: infoMercatiEsteri
