We are pleased to announce that in March 2022, Japan Foreign Trade Council, Inc. published “Foreign Trade 2022”, with full coverage of Japan's foreign trade statistics on a customs-cleared basis for the previous year.

“Foreign Trade 2022” marks the 47th edition of this publication since it was first released in 1976. Using latest trade statistics, “Foreign Trade 2022” features Japan’s foreign trade, by area and by commodity. It is abundant with graphs and charts, and concise comments so readers can quickly grasp the basic trend of Japan’s trade. Items such as Nonferrous Metals, Power Generating Machine and Semicon Machinery etc. are added to Chapter 2. Trade by Major Commodity and Data Chapter was also improved this year.

We hope you will find this volume useful, as educational material for new employees, as a handy reference for overseas business trip, or as a reference material for employees in overseas offices.
