Toyota Motor Corp has agreed to the pay hikes requested this year by the automaker's labour union - an unusually speedy wrapping up of annual wage negotiations that comes amid calls by the government for firms to lift wages.

"We have made an offer that fully met the union's demands," Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda told reporters late Thursday after a meeting with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

Kishida is counting on profitable Japanese firms to raise wages to help push his 'new capitalism' agenda of wealth distribution and help the world's No. 3 economy recover from the pandemic.
