Japan entered the economic recession

The economy of Japan - the third largest economy in the world - showed a negative growth for the second consecutive quarter, which formally means the country's plunge into a recession, the BBC reports.

In the third quarter of this year, from July to September, Japan's GDP contracted by 1,6% in annual terms - instead of the expected growth of 2,1%.

The second quarter that preceded it completely ended with a fall in GDP by 7,3% in annual terms - this is the worst indicator since March 2011, when a powerful earthquake and tsunami hit Japan.
