Japanese Vehicles Sales in 2016 Toyota_concept-i_2017

Japanese Vehicles Sales 2016 fell down moderately while for the third year in a row falling at the lowest in five years. However Toyota improved sales as many importers. Ford gave away.

Market Outlook

An accommodative monetary policy and a weaker yen are expected to boost growth next year. That said, ambitious economic and social reforms are needed to ensure a healthier and more sustainable growth trajectory. The main downside risk to growth next year will be increased protectionism under Trump’s administration. Analysts see the economy growing 0.9% next year.
