Japan's foreign trade deficit turned out to be record high
According to the Ministry of Finance of Japan: "The fiscal year in Japan (ended March 31, 2014) ended with the largest foreign trade deficit in the history of the country in the amount of 13,75 trillion yen (more than 134 billion dollars)"
Deficiency became the largest since 1979 year, when in Japan began to conduct such statistics on the rules now adopted. Export compared to last year increased by 10,8% and reached 70,86 trillion yen (more than 691 billion dollars). Import also increased by 17,3% and amounted to 84,61 trillion yen (825 billion dollars).
The growth in imports is primarily due to the need to purchase large volumes of liquefied natural gas and other mineral fuels for thermal power plants. This is due to the shutdown of all nuclear power plants in the country after the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant in 2011.
