(27) Specifically, the council urged the government to take advantage of policy-based finance to facilitate finance during the period to fiscal 2004 for the intensification of NPL disposal, make preparations for a shift to desirable policy-based finance while watching private financial institutions' revival and enhancement of their functions between fiscal 2005 and 2007, and shift to a new policy-based finance system promptly in and after fiscal 2008. As for policy-based finance targets, the council called for selecting areas need policy-based finance means strictly by the end of fiscal 2007 at the latest.
