Taro Aso quotes

It is one option to help support consumer spending.
I'm aware that there are countries that can deploy fiscal stimulus, while others cannot due to their own situations.
I do think where there is fiscal space, the path-way towards growing global demand would be advanced if it's used.

It was meaningful for us as (the G7) properly recognises that steps we are taking to beat deflation are not aimed at influencing currency markets.

We've got to think of the positive too.
I am determined to win the upcoming election, to revive our country, push on with reform, and launch new ideas.
