Budgetary Governance in Practice: Japan

Following a pick-up in economic growth in Japan to 1.5% in 2017, growth is projected to remain close to 1% in 2018 and 2019, despite a resumption of fiscal consolidation, as export growth remains robust. Employment is projected to peak in 2018 as the decline in the working-age population accelerates. Sustained above-potential growth will boost inflation to 1% in 2018 and around 1.5% in 2019 (excluding the impact of the increase in the consumption tax rate).
