BOJ board member Kataoka speaks in Yokohama

  • Doesn't see any significant demerits emerging from easing policy
  • BOJ's July decision is neither an expansion or withdrawal or stimulus
  • It is more of a strengthening of framework
  • ETF purchases are market dependent
  • It depends on risk premium situation
  • Doesn't see problems in financial markets now
