Japan - front runner for PM Suga says will maintain BOJ easing, the inflation target
Japan's chief cabinet secretary Suga is the favourite to become the next Prime Minister.
- The LDP will vote on September 14 for the new leader.
Suga is perceived as a 'steady hand' candidate, he's been chief cabinet secretary all through current PM Abe's reign.
Suga has just been speaking, his comments on economic policy centred on no current plans for a sales tax hike (for 10 years he says) and also that easing policy and the 2% price target will remain.
He has said both before.
