The government lowered its assessment for exports along with public investment, but largely left its main economic assessment intact on month, the Cabinet Office said on Friday.
"Exports are increasing at a slower pace," the Cabinet Office said of the first notch down since March 2021.The previous assessment was "a moderate increase continued."
It also said that public investment stayed at high level but weakened recently for the first downward revision since April 2021.
