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.
