TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Monday the central bank will adjust monetary policy as needed to achieve its 2 percent inflation target with an eye on economic, price and financial developments.
"Japan's economy is expected to expand moderately as a trend," Kuroda said in a speech at the central bank's quarterly meeting of its regional branch managers.
The BOJ last month switched its policy to target interest rates and away from expanding the monetary base - or the pace of money printing - after years of massive asset purchases failed to jolt the economy out of decades-long stagnation.
