worldleaks Japan business mood

Japanese big manufacturers’ business confidence improved over the three months to December to its highest level in six years, a central bank survey indicated, boding well for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s stimulus policies aimed at ending 15 years of grinding deflation.

But the Bank of Japan’s quarterly “tankan” survey pointed companies were less affirmative about the outlook and cautious of boosting capital expenditure, highlighting their uncertainty on whether the economy will sustain its momentum.
