Japan Trade by Geographic Region

March 12, 2012

(This article was first published on Timely Portfolio, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

To further the analysis presented in Japanese Trade and the Yen, I thought I would take the more granular data provided by the Japanese Ministry of Finance on trade by geographic region.  Of course, I will use R to read, analyze, and plot the .csv data.  Below you will see there are only two remaining regions where Japan has a trade surplus (North and South America), and those surpluses are declining very rapidly.
