BOJ governor, Haruhiko Kuroda, remarks in his press conference

  • Japanese economy remains in severe state, but picking up as a trend
  • Consumption stagnating due to weak services sector spending
  • Economic activity will remain low for now but seen recovering amid vaccine progress
  • Inflation to hover around 0% for the time being, then gradually accelerate

Pretty much the usual stuff from Kuroda. In case you missed out on the BOJ policy decision earlier in the day, you can check it out here.
