Euro crisis (and China) sinking Japanese exports
Trade with the EU fell by 25.1% in one year, 11, 9% with China. U.S. exports rose only 4.7%. Low domestic demand in the country, due to the slow post-tsunami reconstruction.

Tokyo (AsiaNews / Agencies) - Japan's exports fell dramatically in July, hit by the crisis in Europe and the slowdown of the Chinese and the U.S. economy.

In one year, the Land of the Rising Sun exports fell 8.1%. Those to the European Union fell by 25.1%, marking the strongest decrease since 2009, following the subprime mortgage crisis in the U.S., trade was down by 29%.

Exports to China - Japan's largest trading partner - fell by 11.9% in a year, marked mainly by the reduction in the trade of semiconductors, electronics and auto parts.

Another troubling sign is that exports to the U.S. rose only 4.7% compared to a year ago.

The reduction in international demand is coupled with the problem of a sluggish domestic demand in a country still scarred by the aftermath of the tsunami and the slow reconstruction process.

The Japanese Ministry of Finance has announced that Japan's trade deficit rose to 517.4 billion yen (5.23 billion euros).

Pope: In “extremely difficult social and marital context”, Church called to carry out mission in fidelity, truth and charity.The opening Mass of the Synod on "The vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world," Pope Francis speaks of the paradoxes of global society: "power" accompanied by loneliness and helplessness." Today's man "ridicules" the family and love, but thirsts for it. The Church bears witness to indissoluble love, but must not forget to care and sustain "the man who falls or who errs." "A Church with closed doors betrays itself and its mission, and instead of being a bridge it becomes a barrier."

Pope in the US: “We Christians, the Lord’s disciples, ask the families of the world to help us”In the last Mass of the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, Francis Pope highlights the daily "little gestures" that define the family, which is “the right place for faith to become life, and life to become faith". Gratitude, respect, and collaboration with families in which the Spirit operates can be found in every “family, people, region, or religion”.
