  • The Japanese government offered the assessment in its Monthly Economic Report for May that "the Japanese economy is recovering at a moderate pace while weakness in exports and industrial production continues." Concerning short-term prospects, the government showed its opinion of 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, further attention should be given to the effects of situations over trade issues on the world economy, while the prospect of the Chinese economy, the uncertainty of situations and policies in overseas economies and the effects of fluctuations in the financial and capital markets also need attention."
