Record Surplus Marked in Japan’s Monthly Income Balance

4, 12. 2006

Japan’s income balance recorded the largest surplus for a single month, according to the statistics announced by the Ministry of Finance on Apr. 12. The announcement, the Balance of Payments (Preliminary) for February, says the black ink figure rose by 29.7% to 1.33 trillion yen on year-to-year basis.

Surpluses in the income balance include the interest of bonds and dividends on stocks. These were brought as a result of investments by Japanese companies and individuals to overseas. The positive figure exceeded 10 trillion yen for the first time in fiscal year 2005, and is quite likely to surpass the amount of trade surplus.
