Japan's Aso says that wants to proceed with proposed sales tax hike in October
Comments by Japanese finance minister, Taro Aso
- Believes that the sales tax hike won't derail Abenomics

If economic conditions continue to hold up as it is currently, they may just get away with it but they're walking on a very fine and tight rope at the moment.
