Japan Nov factory output down 1.0% on month
[TOKYO] Japan's industrial output fell 1.0 per cent in November from the previous month, government data showed on Monday, suggesting that sluggish emerging market demand continues to cloud the outlook for the economy.
The fall compared with a median market forecast of a 0.6 per cent drop, data from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry showed.
Manufacturers surveyed by the ministry expect output to rise 0.9 per cent in December and increase 6.0 per cent in January.
