Consumption tax rate increase to be postponed

The prime minister on 1 June 2016 announced that a planned increase to the rate of consumption tax (from 8% to 10%) will be postponed, and it is expected that bills to amend the consumption tax law, to reflect this postponed rate increase, will be submitted to the Japanese Diet later this year.
