Canon released results for fourth quarter fiscal year 2010. An excerpt
“Looking back at the global economy in 2010, economic conditions continued to improve broadly throughout the world, led by the economic growth of such emerging markets as China and India.
In the United States, despite the unemployment rate remaining at a relatively high level and other concerns, economic conditions continued to recover gradually thanks in part to economic measures by the government.
As for Europe, in spite of lingering financial and employment concerns along with the emergence of financial crises in some countries, the region overall managed to realize a recovery.
China, which quickly recovered its growth pace through major economic stimulus measures, and the rest of Asia, along with other emerging nations, continued to achieve economic expansion. And in Japan, although signs began to appear indicating a turnaround, the recovery came to a standstill at the end of 2010 due to prolonged deflation and other factors.”
