BOJ's Masai: Inappropriate to focus on single measure for easing

TSU, Japan (Reuters) - Bank of Japan board member Takako Masai said on Wednesday that the central bank conducts monetary policy as a package and that it was inappropriate to focus on a single measure, in reference to market expectations about a further deepening in negative interest rates.

Masai was speaking to reporters after delivering a speech to business leaders in the central Japanese city of Tsu in Mie Prefecture.
