Population in Japan
Japan - PopulationFollowing a slowdown in private non-residential investment, growth in the second quarter was revised down to 2.5% in seasonally-adjusted annualized terms, significantly below the 4.0% figure reported in a preliminary estimate. Despite this revision, the print marked the fastest expansion since Q1 2015 and puts the economy on a steady track to recovery. The latest data suggests that healthy growth is being sustained in the third quarter. Machinery orders rebounded in July, and exports had the fastest pace of expansion in almost four years in August. Strong economic momentum and a splintered opposition compelled Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to hold snap elections on 22 October in a bid to consolidate his grip on power. Unlike in previous elections, the prime minister is not expected to postpone an unpopular 10% sales tax hike projected in 2019 to lower astronomical public debt, despite the adverse effects it could have on private consumption and economic growth.
