TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Financial Services Agency head, Toshihide Endo, said on Friday the priority for the country’s private financial institutions now was to give firms some “breathing space” by supporting their funding.

But Endo said there was no change to the fact that Japan’s regional banks must reform their business models in the long run.
