Japan Economic Outlook: On The Bumpy Road Towards Recovery
Japan’s strong finish to 2021 hasn’t carried over to 2022. Virus concerns are weighing on household spending, keeping domestic demand weak and GDP below pre-pandemic levels. Externally, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and COVID-19 lockdowns in China raise the likelihood of more supply disruptions. Slower growth worldwide is a headwind for exports. Meanwhile, surging commodity prices complicate the monetary policy path for the BoJ as it contends with the mixed blessing of elevated supply-side inflation and a weak yen.
Join Moody’s Analytics Senior Economist Dr. Stefan Angrick as he discussed how the Japanese economy will navigate these challenges.
- Headwinds and tailwinds for Japan’s delayed pandemic recovery
