Public Debt in Japan

Japan Public Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Japan - Public Debt

A pickup in global demand and a weak yen continued to support the economy at the outset of the year. In February, exports expanded at a double-digit rate for the first time in over two years, pushing the trade surplus to levels last seen in 2010. Higher demand for Japanese goods is also boosting activity in the manufacturing sector. Against this backdrop, the manufacturing PMI remained firmly entrenched in positive territory in March. However, weaknesses that plagued growth in 2016 have also carried over to this year and despite the continuous fall in unemployment, sentiment among Japanese consumers remains downbeat in February. In a four-day trip to Europe in mid-March, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for the swift signing of the free trade deal between the European Union and Japan, in negotiation since 2013.
