Hide / Show Abstract

Economic growth is projected to reach 1.0% in 2017 before slowing to 0.8% in 2018, boosting headline inflation to 1¼ per cent by the end of 2018. With three supplementary budgets in 2016, fiscal consolidation is pausing, helping Japan to cope with the impact of the yen appreciation. Private consumption is projected to continue rising in the context of labour shortages and the historically high level of corporate profits.
