Japan PM Kishida: Full stimulus plan to be compiled by mid-November

Remarks by Japan prime minister, Fumio Kishida

  • To include targeted payouts to temporary workers, families with children in need
  • Wil consider resuming “go to” subsidised travel programme
  • To unveil government’s COVID-19 response around the same time
  • Japan to start booster shots in December
