TOKYO -- Japan's exports of agricultural products are on track to hit a record annual high, amid the depreciating yen and rebounding global demand fueled by receding pandemic concerns.

Exports of agricultural, forestry, and fishery products and food hit 1.12 trillion yen ($8.34 billion) for the 10 months through October, marking the second time ever that the figure has passed the 1 trillion-yen mark.
