Economic Section Activities In 2016


Economy Trend Of Moderate Economic Expansion

Japan's economy has continued its moderate recovery trend, although exports and production have remained sluggish, due mainly to the effects of the slowdown in emerging economies.

Thus, Japan's economy is likely to enjoy a trend of moderate expansion
