TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Monday the country’s economy was expected to expand moderately as a trend and gradually push inflation toward the central bank’s 2% target.

“The BOJ will make necessary policy adjustments to sustain the economy’s momentum towards achieving its inflation target,” Kuroda said in a speech at a quarterly meeting of the central bank’s regional branch managers.
