Output growth slowed to around ½ per cent in 2014, reflecting in part the impact of the consumption tax hike. Output growth is projected to rebound to around ¾ per cent in 2015 and 1% in 2016, supported by improving labour market conditions and expanded monetary easing. The weaker yen is expected to help sustain export growth and push inflation closer to the 2% target.
