The value of Japan’s agricultural and seafood exports in 2021 reached a record high for the ninth consecutive year while exceeding ¥1 trillion ($8.7 billion) for the first time, backed by strong online and retail sales as people spent more time at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, government data showed Friday.

Exports were worth ¥1.24 trillion, up 25.6% from the previous year, also getting a boost from a recovery in demand for dining out in China and the United States, according to the data released by the farm ministry.
