TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan does not have a long-term need to change its 2025 economic target, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Friday, adding that he may need to reconsider some of the unidentified Omicron brands.
The government has set a goal of achieving greater funding by 2025, which it said “looks like” if policymakers continue to work hard to promote growth and use public safety funds to address the rapidly growing population.
Whether the government maintains or rejects this goal – which does not include the purchase of new bonds and debt repayments – it will be like a gradual test of Kishida’s commitment to economic reform.
Kishida, also known as the hawk, has been prioritizing the economic recovery of the COVID-19 crisis over long-term economic changes since taking office in October.
“We have made sure that what is happening here does not need to change in the year in which we want to achieve budget planning,” Kishida told a meeting of his top financial advisers, who also reviewed his plans.
“However, we will re-evaluate (in more detail) the need and carefully monitor the economic performance within and outside Japan because we will not be able to deal with uncertainties as much as coronavirus has been affected.”
Kishida also said that they have done everything in their power to address the problem of COVID-19 and not to hesitate to spend money to cover the epidemic.
Kishida’s comments follow the government’s claim that Japan will earn more in the 2026 economy based on economic growth, adding that the economic downturn will continue for more than a decade with a slight recovery.
A bi-annual financial statement reflects the challenges facing the debt-ridden government to better restructure its economy, although higher taxes than expected could extend the budget deadline by one year against the forecasts.
Recent revisions of the target also included a warning to reconsider, with renewed funding being provided, to predict the outbreak.
Japan’s government debt is more than double the size of its $ 5 trillion economy, the third largest in the world economy, making it the world’s most debt-ridden country due to many years of capital spending aimed at reviving growth.
Government action based on annual growth of more than 2% in real terms and 3% in nominal terms – something that has not been seen since the explosion of property in the early 1990s. The smaller ones, or starters, depend on the actual size of 1% and the nominal size of about 1.5%.
