Consumer prices in Japan ex fresh food and energy increased 0.8% in May 2022 over the same month in the previous year, climbing by the same pace in April and highlighting the intensifying pressure on the country’s fragile economy from soaring global raw material costs. Meanwhile, the core consumer price index jumped 2.1% in May, exceeding the central bank’s target for a second straight month.
