Japan Bank Lending Rises 1.9% In March
Overall bank lending in Japan was up 1.9 percent on year in March, the Bank of Japan said on Wednesday, standing at 404.786 trillion yen.
That matched forecasts following the revised 1.8 percent increase in February - which was originally called higher by 1.9 percent. Including trusts, bank lending added 1.6 percent - also in line with expectations following the 1.5 percent gain in the previous month.
Loans from foreign banks declined an annual 7.6 percent to 2.030 trillion yen after falling 6.7 percent a month earlier.
