TAKE A LOOK-Asia c.banks: Japan, Taiwan and Philippines keep rates unchanged

The Bank of Japan held monetary settings steady at a policy
review and asked markets to have faith that inflation will hit
its elusive 2 percent goal.
    Later on Thursday, Taiwan's central bank left its policy
rate unchanged, saying inflation was expected to be mild against
a backdrop of rising pressure on the trade and economic fronts
while the Philippine central bank also kept rates unchanged.
