A formal announcement, while symbolic, would signify the removal of a major growth bottleneck for Japan’s economy. Possible options include Prime Minister Fumio Kishida or Cabinet members making a public declaration, and the government issuing a statement in its monthly economic report.

Government officials emphasize that any decision will depend on economic performance, with Prime Minister Kishida expressing optimism about departing from deflation. However, caution prevails due to uncertainties over the price outlook and the unexpected technical recession in late 2023.

The Bank of Japan’s efforts over the past decade aimed at ending deflation have included unprecedented monetary easing steps, but there is speculation about potential changes, such as removing negative interest rates. Critical economic indicators, including the closing of Japan’s output gap, indicate positive developments for achieving stable inflation.
