Kuroda Says BOJ to Mull Fresh Options in Case of More Easing

Updated on

Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda signaled the central bank may need to look at fresh options if more stimulus is needed to propel inflation to levels unseen since stagnation set in two decades ago.

“If, really, our possible path to 2 percent inflation is significantly affected, then of course we can make adjustment to our monetary policy,” Kuroda said in an interview with Bloomberg Television in Davos, Switzerland, on Friday. Asked whether the BOJ will have to get more creative, he said “yes, I think so.” He declined to specify the options available.
