TAKE A LOOK-Asia GDP: Japan's economy expands at best pace in a year, Philippine GDP slows

6 Min Read

Japan's economy grew at the fastest pace in a year in the first
quarter to mark its longest period of expansion in a decade,
heightening prospects that robust overseas demand will underpin
a steady recovery.
    The Philippine economy grew at its slowest pace in more than
a year in the first quarter, but resilient exports and strong
consumer spending are likely to keep momentum buoyant this year.
