Japan's economy improved noticeably - BoJ's Kuroda

Japan's economy has seen a "noticeable" improvement since the Bank of Japan's previous monetary policy meeting, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday.

During a press conference held after a meeting at which the central bank decided to keep the interest rates unchanged, Kuroda pointed out that a rate hike is not being discussed at the moment, adding that the lender is currently not planning to tweak its current monetary policy.

Kuroda also commented on a somewhat weaker yen, underlining that the trend is likely to positively impact the country's economy.
