Suga instructs LDP to come up with new economic stimulus measures

According to all national papers, Prime Minister Suga instructed LDP Secretary General Nikai on Monday to put together a pump-priming package to help stem the coronavirus pandemic and revive the Japanese economy expeditiously. The premier is reportedly hoping to play up his commitment to economic recovery ahead of the upcoming general election. Nikai told the press that the stimulus package will be a “bold” one.

 

In a related development, the Suga administration and the ruling coalition have decided not to heed the opposition camp’s call to hold an extraordinary Diet session in early September to discuss fresh measures to rein in the fifth wave of COVID-19 on the grounds that sufficient funds have already been earmarked for combating the virus.
