Remarks by Japanese economy minister, Yasutoshi Nishimura
- Should not hesitate to deploy fiscal stimulus
- Government must promote new areas of growth such as environment, digitisation
- Also to work on ensuring wages rise consistently
These are token remarks by Nishimura and stuff that has been reiterated for many a time over the years. If anything, it shows that the pandemic isn’t going to change much of the landscape in the Japanese economy and in terms of policy as well.
