Japan's GDP grew an annualized +4.7% in Q1, a notable increase from the preliminary estimate of +4.1% growth. Private demand was revised upward as the domestic economy responded to certain government incentives and post-earthquake reconstruction. Domestic demand will likely remain on a recovery trajectory this year.

    I think the better way to say it is extraordinary and probably nonrecurring.
