Japan economy minister Motegi: Economy recovering moderately as a trend

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Wednesday there was no change to the government’s view that the economy was recovering moderately as a trend.

While exports to Asia and the United States were firm, growth in domestic demand was flat as bad weather hurt sales at restaurants, Motegi told a news conference.

“Taken together, the recovery (in domestic demand) is continuing,” he said after the release of third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) data.
