Suga, Kuroda Affirm Govt-BOJ Cooperation

Suga, Kuroda Affirm Govt-BOJ Cooperation

   Tokyo, Sept. 23 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda at a meeting on Wednesday affirmed continued cooperation between the government and the central bank.
   "We agreed that the government and the BOJ will conduct policy measures by sufficiently communicating with each other and fully working together," Kuroda told reporters after the meeting, held at the prime minister's office.
   "It's desirable that exchange rates move stably reflecting economic fundamentals," he added, in reference to the yen's rise in overseas trading during the holiday weekend in Japan. Japanese financial markets were closed on Monday and Tuesday for national holidays.
   The Suga-Kuroda meeting at the prime minister's office was the first since Suga took office on Sept. 16. Suga's predecessor, Shinzo Abe, met with Kuroda at the prime minister's office about twice a year to exchange opinions on economic and other issues.
   At a news conference on Thursday last week, Kuroda said that he plans to hold regular talks with Suga, as he did with the former prime minister.
