'Sufficient chance' of BOJ easing in September: Kuroda
[TOKYO] There is "sufficient chance" the Bank of Japan will add to its unprecedented easing at next month's policy meeting, central bank Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said in an interview published Saturday in the Sankei newspaper.
The BOJ won't hesitate to act based on discussions on the results of a comprehensive review at its September 20-21 board meeting, Mr Kuroda said in the interview.
The bank will publish the results of the review, the first of its type since Mr Kuroda became governor in March 2013, when it releases its policy statement at the meeting, he said.
Board members will discuss the economy and financial situation based on the comprehensive review, and if needed will take further easing steps without hesitation, Mr Kuroda said in the interview.
