BOJ will swiftly ease if momentum for hitting price goal lost: Kuroda

TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Thursday the central bank would “swiftly” consider easing monetary policy if the economy lost momentum toward achieving its 2 percent price target.

He also told parliament that a further escalation in the U.S.-China trade friction could inflict significant damage on the global economy by hurting trade activity and business sentiment.
