Japan's merchandise trade surplus grew 62.7 percent in September from a year earlier on rising exports of autos and communication equipment, the Finance Ministry said Wednesday. The surplus - the margin by which exports exceed imports - increased to 1.638 trillion yen (US$14.36 billion; €10.07 billion). The increase was more than the 45.1 percent predicted by economists polled by Nikkei News and Dow Jones Newswires. The result marked the second consecutive month of increase, underscoring the strength in exports that has supported Japan's economy.
