日本: GDP 再び減少傾向 2021Q1
After growing by 2.8% q/q in Q4 2020, Japan's real GDP contracted by a seasonally-adjusted 1.3% q/q in Q1 2021, resulting in a fall of 1.9% y/y and an annualised contraction of 5.1%.
The renewed downturn was due to the state of emergency declared between January and late March 2021 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 related infections. On an annualised basis, private consumption (accounting for approximately 60% of GDP) declined by 5.4%, and private non-residential investment by 5.5%. Government consumption and investment also declined, but residential investment grew by 4.5% y/y. Goods and services export volume increased by 9.7%, while imports rose by 16.8%.
