■要旨
 
<Real GDP growth rate: 2.0% in FY 2022 and 1.7% in FY 2023>
 
  1. In the January-March quarter of 2022, real GDP posted an annualized growth rate of negative 1.0%, the first decline in 2 quarters, due to sluggish private consumption accompanying priority preventative measures and deteriorating external demand.
     
  2. Real GDP is expected to grow 2.0% in FY 2022 and 1.7% in FY 2023. In the April-June quarter of 2022, real GDP is expected to recover its pre-COVID-19 level (October-December 2019), with an annualized growth of 4.1% over the previous quarter on the back of strong private consumption growth, mainly in the form of face-to-face services.
     
  3. However, there are significant downside risks, such as a further rise in resource prices, the worsening situation in Ukraine, monetary tightening by the United States, China's zero-COVID-19 policy, and electricity shortages due to the disruption of energy supply from Russia. Furthermore, if we continue to tighten restrictions as we have in the past during another outbreak of the new COVID-19 virus, we will not see a sustainable recovery in consumption.
     
  4. The consumer price inflation (excluding fresh food) is expected to be 2.0% in FY 2022 and 0.9% in FY 2023. Although energy prices have plateaued as a result of measures to counter rising prices, it will continue to grow by about 2% in FY 2022 as a result of a growing trend of passing prices on to consumers for food and daily necessities. However, in FY 2023, when the impact of the rise in raw material prices will be over, growth will slow to less than 1%.
