Mainichi and Tokyo Shimbun reported on trade data that was released by the Ministry of Finance yesterday, noting that Japan’s trade surplus with the U.S. in the first half of this year was about 3.2 trillion yen, down 5.4% from the previous year. Noting that Japan has consistently logged a trade surplus with the U.S. of over 3 trillion yen on a six-month basis for the past several years, the papers projected that the Trump administration is bound to step up the pressure on Tokyo to correct the trade imbalance swiftly.
