The COVID-19 pandemic has shocked all the major economies including Japan. Although the number of deaths associated with COVID-19 is not as large as those in the US and many countries in Europe and the economic damage also seems to be relatively small, Japan has recorded unprecedented negative economic growth for the second quarter of 2020. The talk looks at the impacts of COVID-19 on the Japanese economy, reviews the policy responses so far, and speculates on the future of the Japanese economy.
