OSAKA (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday the central bank would continue to examine ways to further enhance the sustainability of its yield curve control (YCC) policy.
“If the current low-interest rate environment is prolonged further, it will become necessary to pay closer attention to the cost of our policy” such as the impact on financial institutions’ profits, Kuroda said in a speech to business leaders in Osaka, western Japan.”As such, the important challenge we continue to face would be to think about what’s necessary to further enhance the sustainability of our policy,” he said.
