Japan finmin: BOJ can't easily reach 2 pct price goal in 2 years

TOKYO, March 21 (Reuters) - It is doubtful whether the Bank of Japan can easily achieve its two percent inflation goal within a proposed two-year time limit, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso said on Thursday.

Aso, speaking in parliament, also said revising a law which guarantees the central bank’s independence is a future option but that now is not the time to pursue such a subject.
