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


(Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 8:40 am to 8:47 am)

[Questions and answers:]


It has been reported that Toshiba’s nuclear power subsidiary Westinghouse will file for bankruptcy as early as today. As you previously pointed out, a decision on filing for bankruptcy will likely be made by the end of March, but do you think that this will help Toshiba move forward in releasing its financial statements?


I am aware of the news report you mentioned, but since whether or not Westinghouse should file for bankruptcy, that is, for Chapter 11 protection, is a business decision to be made by a specific company, I would like to refrain from commenting.
