Abe to call for supplementary budget topping 3tn yen

TOKYO -- Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will direct the Japanese government to put together a supplementary budget totaling more than 3 trillion yen ($24.2 billion) next week to help shore up a flagging economy.

The government is set to compile measures to cope with the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact on Nov. 25 and steps for promoting active civic engagement on Nov. 26, with both to be incorporated into the extra budget for fiscal 2015.
