Japan August bank loans rise record 6.7% vs year earlier

    TOKYO, Sept 8 - Japanese bank lending rose a record 6.7% in
August from a year earlier, the Bank of Japan said on Tuesday. 
    Outstanding loans held by the country's four main categories
of banks, including "shinkin" or credit unions, stood at 573.79
trillion yen ($5.4 trillion). 
    The rise in August beat the previous record of a 6.4% gain
in July as lenders continued to boost loans to firms hit by the
coronavirus pandemic.
