November - industrial output up 1.0%

Japan's industrial production in November grew a seasonally adjusted 1.0 percent from the previous month, marking the first rise in six months, the government said Tuesday.

The figure compared with an average market forecast of a 0.9 percent rise in a Kyodo News survey.

Shipments rose 2.5 percent, while inventories were down 1.7 percent, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said in a preliminary report.
