TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Monday that the government will compile an extra budget plan and submit it to an extraordinary parliament session in autumn.
Abe's cabinet last week approved 13.5 trillion yen ($132 billion) in fiscal measures to help revive the flagging economy.
The government's package includes 7.5 trillion yen in spending by the national and local governments, part of which is expected to be funded by an extra budget this fiscal year.
