Japan's economy is starting to recover moderately, induced by improvement in overseas economic conditions. Exports and production have been increasing mainly against a backdrop of high growth in emerging economies. In these circumstances, business fixed investment is showing signs of picking up. Private consumption, notably durable goods consumption, is picking up partly due to policy measures. Public investment is declining. Meanwhile, financial conditions, with some lingering severity, have continued to show signs of easing. The CPI (excluding fresh food) is declining on a year-on-year basis due to the substantial slack in the economy as a whole, but the moderating trend in the pace of decline has continued.

Fund raising in financial markets for funds over the fiscal year-end has mostly been completed, but it is likely that the markets will remain under stress in the new fiscal year given the severe financial and economic conditions described below. In light of this situation, the Bank judged that continued provision of substantial liquidity is required to ensure stability in financial markets. To put this into action, the Bank decided to further utilize its long-term funds-supplying operations by increasing its outright purchases of Japanese government bonds (JGBs), thereby facilitating smooth money market operations.

(BOJ) Statement on Monetary Policy, November 21, 2008 Print E-mail
BOJ | Written by Bank of Japan | Nov 21 08 00:41 GMT
Economic activity has been increasingly sluggish due to the effects of earlier increases in energy and materials prices and the decrease in exports, and this situation will likely persist over the next several quarters. The CPI inflation rate (excluding fresh food), currently around 2.5 percent, is expected to moderate reflecting the declines in the prices of petroleum products and stabilization in the prices of food. In the longer run, the economy is most likely to return onto a sustainable growth path with price stability. However, the outlook remains highly uncertain and given the slowdown in overseas economies and the turmoil in global financial markets, it will likely take some time for the necessary conditions for Japan's economic recovery to be satisfied.
