Hide / Show Abstract

Japan has rebounded strongly from its 2012 recession, led by fiscal and monetary policy stimulus. A fiscal package introduced in early 2013 and a new monetary policy framework aimed at achieving the 2% inflation target, accompanied by a weakening yen, are boosting output and confidence. Aided by a recovery in world trade, output growth is projected to be close to 1½ per cent in 2013 and 2014, which will help to push inflation into positive territory.
