TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Monday the central bank's new policy framework would not result in a tapering of its massive asset-buying program.
"We will continue with our ultra-loose monetary policy to achieve 2 percent inflation at the earliest date possible," Kuroda told parliament.
"It is possible to ease policy further" by deepening negative interest rates, cutting the BOJ's 10-year government bond yield target or expanding asset purchases, he said.
