Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is poised to instruct his staff to draw up a package of measures in response to a recent spate of massive natural disasters and to rev up the nation’s economy after a consumption tax hike a month ago.

The details will be discussed over the course of the government’s budget compilation work later this year, informed sources said. The measures will be included in a supplementary budget for fiscal 2019, which ends in March, and the full fiscal 2020 budget, sources said Friday.
