JKTC FINANCIAL RESOURCES

JKTC's annual budget for capital investment and loan services is about 28 billion, largely derived from the Japanese government's holdings of shares in NTT. 3 As indicated in Table 2.1, the annual budget for investment and loan services from 1990 through 1997 has stayed fairly constant at about 28 billion. Approximately 75% of JKTC's budget is used to support capital investment and 25% for loan services.
