According to assessments from regions across Japan, six regions (Hokuriku, Kanto-Koshinetsu, Tokai, Kinki, Chugoku, and Kyushu-Okinawa) reported that their economy had been expanding or expanding moderately, and three regions (Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Shikoku) noted that the economy had continued to recover moderately. These reports were based on the assessments that the virtuous cycle from income to spending had been maintained, as labor market conditions had continued to tighten steadily and private consumption had improved, while exports had been on an increasing trend with overseas economies growing firmly.
Compared with the previous assessment in April 2018, all nine regions reported that their assessments were unchanged. Meanwhile, the Kinki region reported that its economy had been expanding moderately, although effects of the earthquake in northern Osaka Prefecture (hereafter the earthquake) had been observed in some industries.
