TOKYO -- Despite inflation and COVID restrictions in China, strong overseas sales in Asia and Western countries have contributed to Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing making an upward revision on its full-year earnings forecasts.

"Our full-year earning forecast will be the record high. Even if excluding the effect of exchange rates, it would be a record high," said Takeshi Okazaki, CFO of Fast Retailing.
