July 2 (Bloomberg) -- Martin Schulz, a senior economist at Fujitsu Research Institute, talks about the outlook for Japan's economy after the release of the Tankan survey by the Bank of Japan today.
Japan’s large manufacturers became less pessimistic even as Europe’s debt crisis and the yen’s gains against the dollar weighed on the outlook for exports. The quarterly Tankan index of sentiment was minus 1 in June from minus 4 in March, the BOJ said today in Tokyo. Schulz speaks with Susan Li on Bloomberg Television's "First Up." (Source: Bloomberg)
