Party programs for socially vulnerable adopted by government

March 17 , 2021

Speaking to reporters on March 16, Komeito Chief Representative Natsuo Yamaguchi praised various aid programs for the needy and ailing businesses that the government incorporated as part of its pandemic response initiative. This includes an outright grant of ¥50,000 per child for low-income families and reclarifying terms of repayment of business subsidies. Yamaguchi said the programs, especially those in support of single-parent families, are a direct result of hard Komeito lobbying.
