The Japanese authorities intend to send payments in the amount of 100,000 yen (about $880) to needy households and students as a measure to support the population during the pandemic. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced this on Wednesday at a press conference.


“We approved a course to pay each household whose members found themselves in a difficult economic situation, 100,000 yen. We also plan to send a similar amount to each student in need so that they can continue their studies,” said Kishida.

In addition, he confirmed the information that the Japanese authorities intend to provide benefits in the same amount of 100,000 yen for children under 18.

The payment of benefits will be part of a new financial support package for the economy and the population affected by the spread of the coronavirus. As expected, its volume will be more than 30 trillion yen (more than 265 billion dollars). It is planned to approve the package by the end of November.

Last year, all residents of Japan, including foreigners permanently residing in the country, received a one-time payment of 100,000 yen as part of the population support against the background of the pandemic.
