Saturday morning’s Mainichi and Sankei wrote that Finance Ministry statistics released on Friday showed that exports of hydrogen fluoride to South Korea fell to zero in August. The chemical is one of three materials used in making semiconductors that are now under stricter export controls imposed since July. Mainichi added that exports of Japanese beer to South Korea in August plunged by 92.2% from July apparently due to the ongoing boycott of Japanese products.
