Fukui : easing policy will boost money supply

Bank of Japan Governor Toshihiko Fukui said on Tuesday 27 January that BOJ policies will feed through to growth in Japan's money supply and help the country escape from deflation.

"Given time, our easing policy will feed through into an increased money supply," he said in response to parliamentary questions.

Some ministers have pressured the central bank to boost money supply to help Japan out of its four-year long bout of falling prices.
