BoJ Minutes: Some Members Called For Monetary, Fiscal Policies For Next Downturn

12/23/2019 - 22:53:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - A few board members of the Bank of Japan shared the view that the central bank should not only conduct monetary policy but also enhance its cooperation with the government in terms of economic policies and prepare for the next economic downturn, the minutes of the policy board meeting held on October 30 and 31 showed on Tuesday.

A different member pointed out that the BoJ should continue to examine whether additional monetary easing would be necessary.

At the October meeting, the Policy Board voted 7-2 to maintain interest rate at -0.1 percent on current accounts that financial institutions maintain at the bank. The bank retained it yield target for 10-year Japanese government bonds at around zero percent. Yutaka Harada and Goushi Kataoka voted against the proposal.

Further, the bank strongly signaled further monetary easing going forward at the meeting.

Discussing guidance, many members pointed out that, considering that a pick-up in overseas economies would be delayed, it was necessary to pay close attention to the possibility that the momentum toward achieving the price stability target would be lost.

These members said that it was appropriate for the central bank to consider revising the current forward guidance at this meeting. Also, the bank needed to maintain a policy stance that was tilted toward monetary accommodation for a fairly long period of time, members noted.
