Japan's Suga says will take 'budgetary steps' to help economy

TOKYO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Thursday he would consider taking “budgetary steps” to support an economy hit by the coronavirus pandemic, suggesting the chance of compiling a third extra budget to fund a fresh stimulus package.

Suga made the remarks in parliament amid growing calls from ruling party lawmakers for the government to deploy a fresh spending package to cushion the economic blow from COVID-19.

Sources have told Reuters Suga will likely announce next week a plan for fresh stimulus to help the recession-stricken economy shake off the coronavirus crisis. (Reporting by Leika Kihara Editing by Chang-Ran Kim)
