Japanese say COVID-19 support for business is lacking: survey

Post-crisis behavioral changes bode ill for travel and Olympics

TOKYO -- The Japanese government is not giving companies the support they need to endure the coronavirus-induced downturn, according to a recent survey by public relations company Kekst CNC.

Only 13% of respondents said the government is giving sufficient backing to business, while 58% replied it was not enough. Even so, 60% said they would rather see Japan focus on limiting the spread of the coronavirus, instead of avoiding a recession with a premature economic reopening.
