TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Tuesday that the recent rise in prices in the country was largely due to rising global energy and raw material costs.
“It is desirable to create an environment where businesses can pass on rising costs, raise wages, so that increased consumption drives economic growth and inflation,” Kishida told parliament.
