Well, this is certainly welcome news. 4.9% GDP growth in the first quarter of 2010. That exceeds growth during the same period in both the U.S. and Europe.

Robust sales of Japanese products in emerging countries are beginning to set off a cycle of sustainable growth in Japan. As stronger exports shore up earnings, Japanese companies are boosting investments in plants and machinery.

Good new for Japan, and good news for the security of Japan. Hopefully the government won’t revise the estimate downward like they did in the last quarter of 2009.
