Japan’s Abe – G7 Sees Need to Boost Demand, Address Supply Constraints

G7 leaders agree on the need to take measures to boost global demand and eliminate factors that hamper productivity amid lingering risks to the world economy, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday.

“There are downside risks to the global economy,” such as the fallout from China’s slowdown, Abe said during a debate with opposition party leaders.

“I’ve called on the need to create demand and to remove supply-side constraints,” Abe said, in explaining what he discussed with European leaders during his visit to Europe earlier this month.
