Japan March industrial output up 1.2 pct mth/mth

TOKYO, April 27 (Reuters) - The rise in Japan’s industrial output slowed to 1.2 percent in March from the previous month, government data showed on Friday, in a sign of a slight slowdown in corporate activity.

The rise fell short of a median forecast for a 0.5 percent increase and followed a 2.0 percent rise in February.

Manufacturers surveyed by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry expect output to rise 3.1 percent in April and fall 1.6 percent in May.
