BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said at a quarterly meeting of regional branch managers that the central bank would maintain its ultra-loose monetary policy until inflation hits 2% target. He added that the economy is expanding moderately and is expected to continue with it. Consumer inflation, however, is moving between 0.5% to 1.0%.
BoJ will continue to pursue current policy under the yield curve control framework for as long as needed. The monetary policy will be adjusted when necessary to maintain economic momentum.
