Exports and imports of textile machinery and equipment from Japan increased by 9.4 percent year-on-year and 14.2 percent year-on-year, respectively, during January to December 2011, according to statistics of the Japan Textile Machinery Association (JTMA).

Textile machinery exports from Japan were worth 243.51 billion yen or about US$ 3.02 billion, while the country imported 33.31 billion yen or about US$ 412.41 million of textile machinery in 2011, JTMA said.

Exports of spinning machinery accounted for 26.86 billion yen (US$ 332.78 million), showing a rise of 12.7 percent y-o-y.
