growth above its potential after weakening in the April-June
quarter due to the impact from a sales tax hike.

companies, especially among automakers and retailers, holding a
more cautious view about the economic outlook," Kuroda told a

capital spending plans for fiscal 2014/15 is solid. Companies'
positive stance is maintained," he said.
