Press Conference by Taro Aso, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Finance, and Minister of State for Financial Services


(Tuesday, October 4, 2016, 8:41 am to 8:46 am)

[Questions and answers:]


Regarding increasing the deposit caps at Japan Post Group’s two financial institutions, it seems that the FSA has begun verifications with an eye to a second round of cap hikes. Minister, I’d appreciate it if you could make some sort of statement on this, such as on how it will help regional economic revitalization in the future.


At this stage we can’t say how the discussion will play out, whether the answer will be yes or no. This discussion will relate to various other things, such as the topic of realignment in the financial sector, so we’ll make a decision after we’ve had a bit more time.
