The Bank of Japan's Akita branch released the financial and economic overview for March in the prefecture on the 17th. Regarding the local economy, it stated that it is "recovering," and maintained the individual judgments for all six items: personal consumption, public investment, housing investment, equipment investment, production, and employment/income, which were the same as the previous month.

<Personal Consumption> Although a decrease in the number of visitors to stores was observed, including large retail store sales, convenience store sales, and drug store sales, the impact of price increases resulted in an increase. Home center sales remained in a horizontal trend, while household appliance sales have stopped decreasing. The sale of passenger cars is showing weak movement due to a slowdown in orders in some areas and continued supply constraints. Service consumption is recovering mainly in accommodation, aided by the effect of events.

<Public Investment> As there was a decrease in national and prefectural public works, the amount of public construction contracts in February decreased by 21.4% compared to the same month of the previous year. In terms of construction volume, it is gradually recovering.

<Housing Investment> The number of new housing construction starts in January decreased by 30.2% compared to the same month of the previous year due to a decline in rented houses and others.

<Equipment Investment> According to the Equipment Investment Plan of the December 4 Short-term Economic Survey (in the prefecture), the manufacturing industry expects a significant increase of 73.9% compared to the previous year, and the non-manufacturing industry expects a moderate growth of 7.4%, resulting in an overall increase of 56.4% across all industries. This is a plan to surpass the previous year for the second consecutive year.

<Production> Electronic components/devices, the mainstay, are increasing at a slightly slower pace, accompanied by variations in each item. Food is increasing, general and business machines are performing well, and production machinery is weak due to supply constraints.

<Employment/Income> The effective job openings-to-applicants ratio in January remained in a horizontal trend at 1.49 times. Both regular pay and special pay were lower than the previous year, resulting in a 3.4% decrease in total cash earnings in December of the previous year compared to the same month of the previous year. Although the regular employment index exceeded the previous year, due to the decrease in total cash earnings, the employee income in the same month decreased compared to the previous year. (3:30 p.m.)
