The num­ber of new en­ter­prises set up by Ja­panese in­vest­ment in­creased by 3.5 per­cent and ac­tual in­vest­ment rose by 3.2 per­cent, the Min­istry of Com­merce said. The min­istry did not pro­vide a to­tal amount for Ja­panese in­vest­ment last month.

Ja­pan’s di­rect in­vest­ment in China fell by 38.8 per­cent yearon-year in 2014 to $4.33 bil­lion.
