The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) compiled a report on economic indices concerning production, private consumption, business investment and other elements for each region in order to ascertain the trends in regional economies across Japan.
Amid the expansion of the novel coronavirus disease, the current economic situation has been changing dramatically.
Please note that the economic trends published here are a compilation of statistical results for each region as of February 2020.
Note: METI overhauled the “Regional Economic and Industrial Research,” which was conducted and publicized on a quarterly basis, and, instead, since March 2020, it has been compiling economic indices of production, private consumption and other elements by region into a report and publishing it on a monthly basis as “Report on Trends in Regional Economies and Industries”.
