Japan's three biggest banks and two smaller banks are starting talks on building a common settlement infrastructure for small payments, with the aim of cutting interbank fees, they announced on Thursday. While everyday transactions in Japan are usually completed in notes and coins, authorities have been keen to promote cashless transactions to raise productivity and curb transmission of the coronavirus. The core banks of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc , Mizuho Financial Group Inc and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc and two banks owned by Resona Holdings will participate in the talks.
Mitsubishi UFJ's (MUFG) first-quarter fiscal 2020 results underline elevated credit costs and expenses, partly offset by higher gross profits.
Japanese shares retreated from a one-week high on Wednesday as downbeat earnings reports underscored the economic blow from the COVID-19 pandemic and a firmer yen weighed on exporters. The Nikkei index ended down 0.26% at 22,514.85, with the telecommunications and the consumer discretionary sectors leading the declines. The broader Topix fell 0.04% to 1,554.71.
