Fiscal Balance in Japan

Japan Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Japan - Fiscal Balance

Growth momentum likely moderated in Q1, mostly on the back of cooling global demand, which traditionally fuels activity in the all-important manufacturing sector and shores up business investment. Against this backdrop, industrial production fell on a monthly basis in March and sentiment among large manufacturers declined to a two-year low in Q1 2019. An uncertain economic outlook could have started to weigh on household spending, as consumer confidence fell to an over three-year low in March. In an attempt to rekindle economic growth, in late March the parliament approved a record JPY 111 trillion (USD 920 billion) budget for FY 2019 (April 2019–March 2020), which increases spending on welfare, public works and defense. The budget also allocates resources to mitigate the negative impact of a planned sales tax hike in October.
