    “We have cut our FY15 estimate for real GDP growth from +0.9% y-y (as of 29 January) to +0.7% to reflect contraction in 2015 Q4 and the likely impact of recent market turbulence on capex and consumer spending. We have lowered our FY16 estimate from +1.4% to +1.0% to reflect (1) the likely impact of recent turbulence on global financial markets, (2) downward revisions to our assumptions for overseas demand, and (3) the carryover effect from low growth rates in FY15 H2. For FY17, we have made a slight downward revision from -0.1% to -0.2% as we retain our assumption that the consumption tax hike will go ahead.”
