Japan's Coincident Economic Index Up 1.6 Points in Dec.

   Tokyo, Feb. 7 (Jiji Press)--Japan's composite index of coincident economic indicators in December last year rose 1.6 points from the previous month, up for the first time in two months, the Cabinet Office said in a preliminary report Wednesday.
   The rise stemmed from growth in exports to the United States, the European Union and Asia.
   The coincident index, which reflects current economic conditions, stood at 116.2 against the 2020 base of 100, the government agency said.
   The Cabinet Office kept its assessment on the index unchanged, saying it is "improving."
   As well as exports, production and shipments of semiconductor manufacturing equipment were strong.
