Japan Inflation Rises 0.7% On Year In June
Consumer prices in Japan were up 0.7 percent on year in June, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said on Friday.
That was unchanged from the May reading, although it was shy of expectations for 0.8 percent.
Core CPI, which excludes food prices, was up an annual 0.8 percent — in line with expectations and up from 0.7 percent in the previous month.
Both overall and core CPI were up 0.1 percent on month.
