日本在经济刺激计划中考虑向家庭发放现金

2020-3-19 15:11

 

据路透社报道,日本将考虑向家庭发放现金补贴,作为经济刺激计划的一部分,该刺激计划的价值可能超过2760亿美元,以应对冠状病毒爆发带来的影响。


报导援引日本经济产业大臣西村泰敏(Yasutoshi Nishimura)的话说,日本经济刺激计划将有足够的勇气抵御这场危机,他认为这场危机可能比2008年全球金融危机更为严重。


西村在周四的内阁会议后对记者表示,"我们希望研究各种可能性,包括任何现金支出的规模。"


日本产经新闻星期四报道说,日本执政联盟正在考虑一项价值30多万亿日元(2760亿美元)的经济计划,以应对禽流感的影响。


路透社指出,这将远远超过政府去年12月编制的26万亿日元刺激计划,该计划旨在缓解美中贸易战对依赖出口的日本经济的影响。


一位政府高级官员对路透表示,"现在是危机形势,因此政府可能会动用所需资金。"


日本财务大臣麻生太郎(Taro Aso)周四表示,减税可能包括在经济刺激计划中,但降低销售税的可能性不大。他还对记者表示,日本在制定经济刺激方案时必须注意其庞大的公共债务,因为巨额支出可能会迫使日本发行更多债务。


日本经济已经受到去年销售税上调和全球需求疲软的影响,日本经济受到了这种病毒的冲击,这加大了日本经济陷入衰退的可能性。


日本央行(Bank of Japan)在周一临时召开的政策会议上决定放松货币政策,但这对扭转市场情绪没有起到什么作用。

 

Japan will look into offering cash payouts to households as part of a stimulus package that could be worth more than US$276 billion to combat the widening fallout from the coronavirus outbreak, Reuters reports.

Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura was quoted as saying that the stimulus package, likely to be compiled by the government in April, will be bold enough to fend off a crisis he described as potentially more serious than the 2008 global financial crisis.

“We’d like to look into various possibilities including on the size of any cash payouts,” Nishimura told reporters after a cabinet meeting on Thursday, though he could not say at this stage what the size of the package would be.

The Sankei newspaper reported on Thursday that Japan’s ruling coalition is considering an economic package worth more than 30 trillion yen (US$276 billion) to deal with the virus fallout.

That would far exceed the 26 trillion yen stimulus package the government compiled in December last year to ease the impact from the US-China trade war on the export-reliant economy, Reuters noted.

“It’s a crisis situation now, so the government will likely use as much money as needed,” a senior government official told Reuters.

Finance minister Taro Aso said on Thursday that tax cuts could be included in the package, but rolling back the sales tax is unlikely. He also told reporters that Japan must be mindful of its huge public debt when compiling a stimulus package, as big spending could force it to issue more debt.

The virus epidemic has hit Japan’s economy, already reeling from last year’s sales tax hike and soft global demand, heightening the chance of a recession.

The Bank of Japan’s decision to loosen monetary policy at an unscheduled policy meeting on Monday did little to turn around market sentiment, soured by fears over the virus fallout.
