Key points from Kuroda’s speech:

  • BOJ will persistently keep the current easy policy while keeping a close eye on both its positive and side effects.
  • Kuroda said, “This is exactly the kind of situation in which policy sustainability and durability are important.”
  • It is essential to sustain positive inflation for as long as possible under the current structure of QQE, with yield curve under control, and thereby firmly sustain the momentum toward 2% inflation.
  • BOJ is taking time to achieve the 2% price stability target. “Downside risks mainly regarding overseas economies have come to warrant further attention.”
  • “The BOJ needs to pursue the monetary policy that is most appropriate to the situation at the time while weighing its benefits and costs.”
