TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Wednesday it is important for the central bank to continue with its quantitative easing because its 2 percent inflation target remains distant.
Policymakers need to closely monitor the price trend because inflation remains weak despite a tight labor market, Kuroda said in a speech.
Kuroda also expressed confidence in overall economic growth due to strong exports and industrial production.
