Japan: Economic stimulus program planned

Tokyo – Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will soon call for economic measures to bolster growth after next year’s Tokyo Olympics as well as recent disasters.
In the wake of October’s Typhoon Hagibis, which left a trail of destruction across eastern Japan, Abe’s government has made rebuilding stricken areas and improving disaster mitigation infrastructure a priority.
Proposals include reassessing levees, dams and other flood controls and strengthening them as needed. (Nikkei)
