Japan’s industrial output rose 6.2% in June from the previous month, surpassing the level before the coronavirus pandemic, buoyed by a recovery in production of autos and semiconductor-making equipment, government data showed Friday.

The seasonally adjusted index of production at factories and mines stood at 99.3 against the 2015 base of 100, above the 99.1 posted in January 2020 and topping the figure for the second time since April this year, the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry said in a preliminary report.
