The push to rise-up

Japan predicted that they will be on a path of speedy recovery of their economic losses by the end of the year if they kept their pace of 12.7% growth per quarter but the growth was fragile and was limited due to the fear of another wave of the Coronavirus outburst as the economy of Japan grew by only 3% between October – December and the growth were considered slow as the previous quarter’s 5.3%. In December, the Government of Japan tried to get outside of this economic situation by throwing a stimulus packaging of 73.6tr yen that is, $708bn which eventually helped a little bit as they took their total spending to around $3tr.

She said: “The conditions are such that Japan will not be able to avoid negative growth in the first quarter,” She also added by saying: “There is a high possibility that there will be a repeating cycle of coronavirus infections spreading and being contained this year, which means that consumption is not likely to recover at the expected pace.”
