BoJ's deputy governor Wakatabe: BoJ won’t directly target exchange rates

  • It may be necessary for the central bank and government to agree on a 2013 joint statement-like arrangement to tackle the (COVID-19) crisis and secure a proper division of labor
  • BoJ has numerous tools and programmes it can expand if it see the need to ease monetary policy further
  • Currency moves are “extremely important” components for Japan’s economy that the central bank is watching carefully
  • If we judge that inflation dynamics would be further eroded or weakened by exchange rate moves, that is time we should think of taking policy action
  • Japan's experience shows monetary easing can be maintained for extended period of time
  • Benefits of monetary easing far outweigh costs
  • Japan's financial sector problems have a lot to do with structural issues like demographics
  • BoJ doesn't set maximum employment as explicit target but must pay close attention to job, income conditions
