The head of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda said that the Japanese economics would continue a moderate recovery even if the sales tax were increased. He also added that the Central Bank was going to monitor the risks and adjust monetary policy if it was necessary.

According to Hideki Matsumura’s words, the senior economist of the Japan Research Institute in Tokyo, the U.S. Federal Reserve’s actions confirm that the downward trend of the yen will be continued and the economic recovery of the United States would help to an exports increase from Japan.
