Japan Q1 GDP Contracts at Record Pace in 54 Yrs.

Japan’s economy contracted at the fastest pace since 1955 as exports plunged and companies slashed production.

The country’s real GDP shrank at an annual pace of 15.2% in Q1, the government said Wednesday.

The result represents the fastest decline since Japan began compiling GDP statistics more than five 50 years ago.
