TOKYO, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Budget requests from Japan’s ministries have totalled 103.489 trillion yen ($978.71 billion) for the next fiscal year starting in April 2021, the finance ministry said on Wednesday.
The general-account spending requests for fiscal 2021 compared with a record 105 trillion yen sought initially for the current fiscal year.
