Canadian economy has been one of the fastest growing developed economies on back of robust business investment and higher public infrastructure spending. Employment growth is also driving the wages higher providing more in the hands of people for discretionary consumer spending. I am expecting the economy to continue doing well while some moderation in growth is plausible.

Japanese economy is continuing moderate pace of recovery. Government is also putting large investments for the year 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games which is likely to have a positive spillover effect on the larger Japanese economy. Though the inflation is not expected to rise substantially any time soon as wage growth is tepid.
