TOKYO -- Japan's economic ministry plans to act as a matchmaker that will bring promising Southeast Asian companies together with Japanese capital to fuel growth.

Under the framework, Japanese companies will enter into capital and operational tie-ups with Asian partners, with government-backed funds injecting growth capital. The initiative is set to form a central piece of the growth strategy the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will craft next year.
