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


(Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 9:52 am to 9:55 am)

[Questions and answers:]


I would like to ask about the Shoko Chukin Bank. The Financial Services Agency reportedly will launch an on-site inspection regarding illicit loans exploiting a government program, and I would like to ask about the veracity of this news as well as your opinion on this matter.


We are presently analyzing materials, and we have decided to conduct an on-site inspection as soon as our preparations are complete. At this stage, we cannot say any more than that.
