Report summary

Japan's extensive stimulus and reforms have had limited success at increasing GDP growth. There have been improvements in the trade position, but consumption continues to be weak due to a lack of wage growth. As such, it is difficult to see GDP growth rising above 1% per annum without significant productivity gains on the back of structural reforms. Japan's ageing demographic will contribute to slow economic growth to 2035.
