Japanese Consumer Confidence Increased Slightly in April for the First Time in Six Months

The Japanese Cabinet Office announced today that Japanese consumer confidence rose in April for the first time in six months after the government announced the end of the Covid 19 control measures.

The general household confidence index stood at 33.0 points in April, up slightly from 32.8 in March.

A figure below 50 means that consumers are more likely to view the economic outlook negatively than positively.
