BONN, Germany (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda on Friday repeated the bank’s resolve to maintain its ultra-easy monetary policy, saying the country’s inflation was unlikely to accelerate faster than it projected last month.
“I explained to my Group of Seven counterparts that we will patiently continue with our powerful monetary easing,” Kuroda told a news conference after attending the G7 finance leaders’ gathering in Germany.
