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


(Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 9:44 am to 9:48 am)

[Questions and answers:]


I would like to ask about Toshiba. Today is the deadline for the company to submit its earnings report, but it has been pointed out by various media outlets that the company might submit this report with a disclaimer of opinion by its auditing firm or might apply for another extension. Would you please give us your thoughts on Toshiba at this stage and tell us how a request for a further extension would be handled?


It is not the place of the Minister of Finance to comment on matters pertaining to a particular company.
