Monthly Economic Report, Executive Summary 2016 May
(Assessment of the current state of the Japanese economy)
Cabinet Office, Government of Japan
http://www5.cao.go.jp/keizai3/getsurei-e/2016may.html
The Japanese economy is on a moderate recovery, while weakness can be seen recently.
* Private consumption is almost flat, while consumer confidence appears to be pausing.
* Business investment is picking up.
* Exports are almost flat.
* Industrial production is flat.
*Corporate profits show a trend toward improvement, although the pace has become moderate. Firms’ judgment on current business conditions shows cautiousness.
* The employment situation is improving.
* Consumer prices are rising moderately.
Concerning short-term prospects, the economy is expected toward recovery, supported by the effects of the policies, while employment and income situation is improving. However, there are downside risks of the Japanese economy including slowing down of emerging Asian economies including the Chinese economy and countries with natural resources amid the weakness of overseas economies. In addition, attention should be given to the increased uncertainty in overseas economies and the effects of fluctuations in the financial and capital markets under such circumstances. Also, full attention should be given to the economic impact of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake.
