Japan GDP Growth Flat in the Fourth Quarter of 2012

According to a release from the Japanese Cabinet Office, gross domestic product stagnated in the fourth quarter of 2012 from a quarter earlier and expanded 0.5 percent compared with the same quarter of 2011.

Japanese gross domestic product was flat in the fourth quarter from the previous quarter, revised up slightly from a preliminary estimate, suggesting that the economy is slowly crawling out of a mild recession.

That translated into annualised growth of 0.2 percent in price-adjusted real terms.
