Population in Japan

Japan - Population

Recently released GDP data corroborates that growth momentum strengthened in Q1, as private consumption accelerated following Q4’s nearly flat reading. Moreover, the external sector continued to look healthy, on the back of a competitive yen and robust global demand. Nevertheless, subdued wage gains, coupled with a resurfacing of inflation, are still eroding households’ purchasing power, dashing any hope of achieving a sustainable growth trajectory in the near term. In the political arena, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is facing resistance from his own party in his attempt to revise Japan’s constitution by 2020. The famous Article 9, which enshrines in law the country’s pacifist stance, is proving to be a particular bone of contention. Abe’s intention to provide the Self-Defense Forces with greater legal backing has the potential to fan political unrest in the region.
