ITEM 1 Production Figure of Ammonium Sulphate Was 4,700 tons In Second Week of January - Nippon Sangyo Keizai - 20 Jan 46. Translator: Z. Konishi.
Full Translation:
According to the investigation made by the Ammonium Sulphate Fertilizer Manufacturing Association (KYUAN HIRYO SEIZO KUMIAI), the production of ammonium sulphate was 4,700 tons in the second week (7th to l4th) of January. This figure shows an increase of 875 tons as compared with the previous week, but it is far from the production schedule of 7,200 tons.
At the present rate of production, the production schedule of 20,000 tons for January is a very hopeless figure. The actual production figures of each factory are as follows:
Grestest production is shown by the NISSAN Chemical Company with 1300 tons; next, are the SUMITOMO Chemical Company (SUMITOMO KAGAKU with 1,135 tons, and the NIPPON Nitrogen Company (NIPPON CHITSUSO) with 1,803 tons. The SHOWA Electric Industry Company (SHOWA DENKO) is expected to show an increase in production in the near future.
The present low production rates are due to the difficulties of coal and coke supply; the lack of essential materials makes repair of the superannuated plants impossible. Consequently troubles in production are continually occurring.
ITEM 2 Finance Ministry Reveals How Deposit Section Stands - Nippon Sangyo Keizai - 20 Jan 46. Translator: H. Shindo.
Full Translation:
The Finance Ministry reported, on 19 January, the standing of its Deposits Section (YOKIN-Bu) at the end of last year. There is a favorable balance of 52,591, 243,000 yen between income and investment, an 8,883,734,000 yen increase compared with the previous year's end. Postal savings and stamp revenue in particular increased 10,993,941,000 yen and 744,248,000 yen respectively. There were no bonds issued, and consequently there were no bonds purchased. As expected, however, the purchase of bonds made up 75 percent of the expenditure because bonds were bought back from the Bank of JAPAN.
