TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s consumer inflation may briefly exceed 1.5% but likely will not gain momentum to sustainably head toward the central bank’s 2% target, Bank of Japan board member Goushi Kataoka said on Thursday.
In a speech, Kataoka also said risks to the economic outlook were skewed to the downside, because of the fallout from the crisis in Ukraine and the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
