TOKYO (Reuters), – Fumio, Japan’s Prime Minister, stated Monday that the government would prioritise tax reforms to help companies raise their wages and redistribute wealth more to households.

When Kishida was asked about the possibility of increasing Japan’s capital gain tax, he replied that it was among the options.

He said that there were other matters we need to do, such as reforming our tax system in order to increase wages. The government may also consider tax incentives for companies who boost their earnings.
