IMF: Yen’s move driven by fundamentals

Sanjaya Panth, deputy director of the IMF’s Asia and Pacific Department, said Yen’s depreciation is “driven by fundamentals.

“Economic policymaking should continue to look at fundamentals. We don’t see any reason to change economic policy because what’s happening right now reflects fundamentals.”

“As you know, a weak yen hasn’t been bad for Japan,” Panth said. “At the same time, it does affect households. It’s a little bit of a mixed bag.”

“Japan is in a very different situation compared with other advanced countries who have begun tightening monetary policy,” he said. “We do not see any need to change the accommodative monetary policy stance.”
