Consumer spending in Japan, which accounts for about half of the country’s GDP, decreased 1.3% to 285,101.6 billion yen in the third quarter of 2021 from 288,839.0 billion yen in the second quarter. The latest figures reflected a sharp decline in car sales and continued weakness in the services sector, as major Japanese cities were under a COVID-19 state of emergency for the most part of the third quarter. The Tokyo Summer Olympics, which took place from July 23 to August 8, also failed to ramp up spending because audiences were prohibited from most events. source: Cabinet Office, Japan
