Japanese government presses central bank for stimulus

The Bank of Japan is under pressure from the government to deliver a better strategy to boost the country's flagging economy.

The Japanese prime minster, Shinzo Abe, took office last month with a commitment to fix the economy by increasing spending and pressing the central bank to expand its programme of buying assets.

The BBC's correspondent in Tokyo, Rupert Wingfield-Hayes, reports that the government wants aggressive action from the Bank of Japan.
