Provisional Translation

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


(Tuesday, January 7, 2020, 11:47 am to 11:56 am)

[Questions and answers:]


I have a question related to the Japan Post Insurance. New President MASUDA Hiroya assumed office yesterday. The three presidents of the group have now been changed, and in light of the series of incidents, I’d like to ask you what your expectations are for the new presidents.


I understand that the three presidents are formerly of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, previously called the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. Not MASUDA Hiroya, he was of the Ministry of Construction. I think that’s what’s different. In any case, I will not comment on the executive personnel affairs of individual companies.
