Taku Yamasaki, policy chief of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, said Thursday that the LDP will draft additional economic measures next week.

Yamasaki said the package will be included in the planned fourth round of economic pump-priming steps to be announced by the government by March 20. Yamasaki made the remark after meeting with Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto at the Prime Minister’s Official Residence. However, he declined to comment on the contents of the package.
