Japan Producer Prices Rise 0.2% On Month In November

Producer prices in Japan were up 0.2 percent on month in November, the Bank of Japan said on Wednesday.

On a yearly basis, producer prices added 0.1 percent - again exceeding expectations for a flat reading following the 0.4 percent decline in the previous month.

Export prices were up 0.2 percent on month and down 5.9 percent on year, the bank said, while import prices rose 0.2 percent on month and tumbled 11.2 percent on year.
