Japan PM's economic speech 'short on detail'

The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, has been announcing the third phase of his efforts to revive the Japanese economy, following decades of feeble growth.

But the BBC's Rupert Wingfield Hayes in Tokyo said that Mr Abe's speech was "big on rhetoric and big on promises" but "very short on detail".

It is thought more details of the prime minister's plans will emerge next week.
