[TOKYO] Economics Minister Akira Amari said on Friday that Japan's economy remained in a recovery trend although weakness was observed in some areas.

Mr Amari said he hoped discussions between the government and private sector kicking off later this month would spur corporate capital spending and help sustain a moderate economic recovery.

The minister made the remarks at a post-cabinet meeting news conference when asked about a surprise drop in machinery orders and other signs of weakness seen in the economy.
