BoJ Keeps Monetary Easing Plan Unchanged
The Bank of Japan on Friday retained its monetary easing plan unchanged and said the economy is recovering moderately.
At the end of a two-day meeting of the nine-member Policy Board, led by Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, the central bank said it will keep the target of the monetary base expansion at an annual pace of JPY 60-70 trillion.
The Board said that the economy is recovering moderately and the year-on-year change in the core consumer price index is now in the range of 0.5-1 percent. The BoJ expects the economy to continue moderate recovery going forward while the annual rate of change in CPI is seen rising gradually.
