Description

Despite gradual recovery due to improvements in corporate earnings and employment, the situation for the Japanese economy remained uncertain due to factors, such as the reactionary decline in demand accompanying the consumption tax hike, and concerns of a downturn in overseas economies. There were also significant rises in raw material prices as a result of yen depreciation with many packaging players having to revise their sales prices and adopt a variety of cost-cutting measures.
