“The economy is enjoying a domestic demand-driven recovery,” Motegi told a news conference after a regular cabinet meeting.

“It’s true there are differences in the degree of recovery in regional economies, so we’ll continue to conduct policy looking carefully at economic developments. But under current economic circumstances, I don’t expect the government to submit a supplementary budget at this autumn’s extraordinary parliament session,” he said.
