Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday said he expects Bank of Japan’s (BOJ) Governor Kuroda to make appropriate decisions to achieve the 2% inflation target.  

The BOJ, in September, maintained its short-term interest rate target at -0.1% and a pledge to guide 10-year government bond yields around 0% under its yield curve control (YCC) policy.

Kuroda reiterated a willingness to do more and added that it would try to push down short- and medium-term interest rates without flattening the yield curve too much, if it were to ease further.
