Japan had a merchandise trade surplus of 751.005 billion yen in December, the Ministry of Finance said on Thursday.

Exports were up 2.0 percent on year at 6.706 trillion yen – missing forecasts for an increase of 2.4 percent following the 4.2 percent decline in the previous month.

Imports sank an annual 11.6 percent to 5.955 trillion yen versus expectations for a decline of 14.0 percent following the 11.1 percent drop a month earlier.
