  • The Japanese government offered the assessment in its Monthly Economic Report for November that " The Japanese economy is recovering at a moderate pace while weakness continuing mainly in exports." Concerning short-term prospects, the government showed its opinion that "weakness remains for the time being, but the economy is expected to continue recovering, supported by the effects of the policies, while employment and income situation is improving. However, attention should be given to situations in overseas economies including the tension over trade issues, the prospect of the Chinese economy and the outcome of the UK leaving the EU, the effects of fluctuations in the financial and capital markets, and the situations of the consumer sentiment after the consumption tax increase."
