Tokyo Stock Exchange

The ecomony of Japan has long been seen as one of the strongest in the world, but concern began in the 1980’s, when real estate prices and stock prices started to decline, and forced the economy into a stagnant state. Over the following years,  from the 1990’s to present day, the growth has started to improve, and the government is positive that the recovery will continue and the economy will carry on growing stronger.

The major export markets of Japan are China, Taiwan, the United States, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong. Products that are exported include electronic equipment, vehicles, chemicals and transport equipment.  Products such as food products, raw materials, oil, wood, fuel, chemicals, textiles and equipment are imported from the United States,  Australia, Indonesia, South Korea and China.

The agricultural sector of the economy is responsible for the provision of pork, eggs, fish, sugar beets, fruit, rice, poultry, dairy products and vegetables. The industrial sector produces vehicles, textiles, steel, metals, chemicals, electronic  equipment, processed food, tools and ships. For more information visit, the Tokyo Stock Exchange Website
