1 Kyushu Economic Internationalization Data 6 < Summary Version >

2 Kyushu Economic Internationalization Data 6 (Highlights) Asian Degree Kyushu s exposure to Asia was higher than the national average in five categories ( Export Value, Businesses Expanding Overseas, Foreign Entrants/Visitors, International Air Routes, and Sister city relationships ), indicating its strong economic ties with Asian countries, but not in Import Value. International Trade With regard to trade value in 5, Kyushu exported 5,956.6 billion JPY (up 3.% YOY) showing YOY growth for the third straight year, and imported 5,678.8 billion JPY (down 6.6% YOY the first YOY decline in six years). Kyushu s exports to Mexico and Hong Kong increased, while its imports from Saudi Arabia and Qatar decreased. Highlights of 5 include the robust export growth, reaching a record high, due to brisk exports of electronic parts such as semiconductors, etc.. On the other hand, imports decreased significantly due to lower petroleum prices in response to resource market crashes. As a result, the trade balance became positive for the first time in five years. Outward/Inward Investments A total of 974 Kyushu-based businesses expanded overseas by 5. These included 33 newcomers (up 3.% from the previous year) in 5. Looking at the destinations of those businesses, Asian countries accounted for just under 8% of the total (757 businesses), with China (359) and ASEAN nations (8) as key drivers. The number of foreign affiliates entering the Kyushu market was 44 as of 4, mainly in Fukuoka Prefecture (33). Nationalities of parent companies of these affiliates included the USA (99), Germany (59), France (35), Switzerland (), and South Korea (). Interpersonal Exchange with Foreign Countries In 5,.5 million foreigners entered Japan via Kyushu (up 38.4% year over year), exceeding million for the first time. By nationality, visitors from South Korea accounted for 59.4% (the largest group), followed by Taiwan and China. Kyushu receives relatively high percentages of Asian visitors, and nearly 3% of the South Koreans who visited Japan per year enter via Kyushu. In 5, Kyushu received a total of 7,365 foreign students (down.6% from the previous year), accounting for.4% of Japan s total figure. In 5, 769 foreign students were hired by firms located in Kyushu, up from the previous year, while accounting for only 4.9% of Japan s total. Topic: Impact of the Kumamoto Earthquakes Concerning the impact of the 6 mid-april Kumamoto earthquakes on Kyushu s exports, a significant decline was observed in each export commodity as well as in total exports (down.9% year over year) during the month of April. After May 6, the export of motor vehicles turned positive, while that of cycles with engines remained low due to the negative impact of the earthquakes. The April 6 Kumamoto Earthquakes had a significant impact on the number of accommodated guests to Kyushu from April to June, resulting in a YOY decline for each month. In particular, a significant decrease was seen in foreign guests. Thanks to the subsidization program (Kyushu Restoration Discount) designed to assist tourist-focused businesses in Kyushu by offering discounts to travelers, and to efforts by local governments and associated organizations to attract more tourists, the number of tourists (both domestic and foreign) staying in Kyushu recovered to pre-earthquake levels. In Kumamoto, however, the figures continue to be lower than the previous year.

4 Characteristics of Kyushu (Economic Exchange with Asian Countries) In order to evaluate the depth of economic exchanges between Kyushu and the nations of the Asian region, the percentage of Kyushu s economic engagement in the Asian region is defined as Kyushu s Asian degree, with a focus on six (6) categories: Export Value, Import Value, Businesses Expanding Overseas, Foreign Visitors, International Air Routes, and Sister City relationships. When Kyushu s Asian degree is compared with that of Japan s nationwide Asian degree for the year 5, Kyushu shows a higher percentage in each of the five categories (except Import Value ), suggesting that Kyushu has strong economic ties throughout the Asian region.

5 Kyushu Trade (Summary) With regard to the value of trade in 5, Kyushu exported 5,956.6 billion JPY (up 3.% YOY) showing YOY growth for the third straight year, and imported 5,678.8 billion JPY (down 6.6% YOY; the first YOY decline in six years). Kyushu s exports to Mexico and Hong Kong increased by.% ) and.9% ) respectively in terms of contribution degree, while its imports from Saudi Arabia and Qatar decreased by 3.% ) and.4% ) respectively in terms of contribution degree. The balance of trade was 77.8 billion yen, the first surplus in 5 years. The share of Kyushu in the nationwide trading value is: 7.9% in exports (the same level as in the previous year) and 7.% in imports (down from the previous year s 7.9%) due to a decline in the value of imports. Kyushu posted a record-high export figure in 5, exceeding even that of 8, a particularly strong year in export value. On the other hand, Kyushu s imports decreased significantly, resulting in a positive balance of trade. Decreased import value of mineral fuels: The year 5 saw a significant decrease in the import values of petroleum and petroleum gas (liquefied natural/petroleum gas). Although higher volumes of petroleum were imported than in the previous year, the global decline in petroleum prices pushed down the import values.

6 Trade Trends of Kyushu (by commodity) The five major commodities Kyushu exports to the world are, in order of export value: Motor vehicles, semiconductors etc, flatrolled products, ships and boats, and rubber tires and tubes, accounting for nearly 5% of all exports. Among these, semiconductors etc contributed most to the export results (up 7.5% from the previous year), with significant growth for Hong Kong. The commodities Kyushu imports include petroleum, petroleum gas, and mineral fuels (such as coal), all of which account for 3% or more, followed by raw materials (e.g. ore of nonferrous) and electronic parts (semiconductors, etc.). The major factor in the decrease in imports was petroleum, from Saudi Arabia, etc. The major factor in the increase in imports was electronic parts such as semiconductors, particularly from Taiwan.

10 5 Kyushu Trade Trends (Highlight -) Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, domestic demand for mineral fuels has been on the rise for use in thermal power plants. Even in Kyushu, the import value of mineral fuels increased, keeping Kyushu s balance of trade in the red for years. In 5, Kyushu imported,54. billion yen of mineral fuels, a significant decline of 34.3% from the previous year. As a result, the trade balance became positive for the first time in five years. By commodity, the import value of coal, coke and briquettes, petroleum, their products, and gas, natural & manufactured was lower than that of the previous year.

11 5 Kyushu Trade Trends (Highlight -) As for mineral fuels, the import unit price of coal remained almost flat. With regard to petroleum and LNG, the import unit price continued to rise through 4, but dropped sharply in 5, reflecting the global resource market crashes. Under these circumstances, the import value significantly decreased by 36.8% from the previous year to,86.5 billion yen, while the import volume of petroleum slightly increased in 5. The import value of LNG also decreased by 4.% from the previous year to billion yen, in 5. The petroleum market dropped sharply from 4 to 5.

17 Topic () : Impact of the Kumamoto Earthquakes (Export Trends) Concerning the impact of the 6 mid-april Kumamoto earthquakes on Kyushu s exports, a significant decline was observed in each export commodity as well as in total exports (down.9% YOY) during the month of April. The aftermath of the earthquakes persisted in May, negatively affecting the export values of parts of motor vehicles, cycles with engines and semiconductors; all were lower than the same month of the previous year. The negative gap expanded beyond April levels in cycles with engines and semiconductors thereafter. In clear contrast to these commodities, motor vehicles showed a significant YOY export growth of 5.5%. After June, the exports started a recovery trend, while the export of cycles with engines remained depressed until September due to production bases that were severely affected by the earthquakes. 4.% Motor vehicles Parts of motor vehicles Cycles with engines Semiconductors etc Total Value of Exports.%.% YOY Trends in Kyushu Exports Value (Total/each commodity) (Jan.

18 Topic (): Impact of the Kumamoto Earthquakes (Tourism) The April 6 Kumamoto Earthquakes had a significant impact on the number of accommodation guests in Kyushu from April to June, resulting in a YOY decline each month. In particular, a significant decrease was seen in foreign visitors staying in Kyushu. Thanks to the subsidization program (Kyushu Restoration Discount) designed to assist tourism businesses in Kyushu with discounts for travelers, and to efforts by the local governments and associated organizations to attract more tourists, the number of tourists staying in Kyushu has been recovering to pre-earthquake levels. The number of foreign tourists staying in Kyushu has also recovered to preearthquake levels. At the prefectural level, Kumamoto and Oita (having been most affected by the 6 earthquakes) suffered a significant drop in the number of visitors, but Oita has recovered to pre-earthquake levels during the year. The number of foreign visitors in Kumamoto, however, remains well below the previous year s level. 6, 5, 4,759 4,84 5,75 5,43 4,699 4,8 4,773 4, Trends in Total Foreign Tourists Staying in Kyushu (Jan. 5 - Sep. 6) Total Tourists (in s) 4, 3,,, 4,43 4,5 4,697 4,9 3,789 3,78 3,95 4,39 3,998 3,798 3,677 3, , Foreign Tourists (in s) Foreigners (5) Foreigners (6) Total Tourists(5) Total Tourists(6) Total Foreign Tourists per Prefecture of Kyushu YOY Trends (Aug. 5 - Sep. 6) JAN FEB MAR APR MAY JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC 5.
