TOKYO, Aug 16 (BestGrowthStock) – Japan’s economy grew 0.1 percent in
April-June, slowing sharply from the previous two quarters as
export growth moderated and a stimulus-driven recovery in
consumption ran out of steam.

The expansion in gross domestic product (GDP) translates into
an annualised increase of 0.4 percent, the Cabinet Office said,
well below a median market forecast of 2.3 percent, after revised
4.4 percent growth in the first three months of the year.

Following is a table of April-June and revised January-March
