The value of Japan’s agricultural and seafood exports in the first six months of 2022 expanded 13.1% from a year earlier, marking a record high for the period as waning coronavirus cases encouraged more people to eat out, government data showed Friday.

Exports in the January to June period totaled ¥652.5 billion ($4.9 billion), supported by robust shipments to the United States as well as a weaker yen, according to the data released by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
