Prime Minister Fumio Kishida pledged on Friday to require big firms to disclose wage gaps between men and women as a centrepiece of his "new capitalism" agenda to be compiled this summer that seeks to balance economic and social concerns.

The new rule would affect 17,650 firms with more than 300 employees, aiming to rectify long-time gender-based inequalities, according to a draft plan submitted to Kishida's new capitalism panel for debate on Friday.
