Central bank’s strong commitment to policy objectives, clear and consistent communication, and decisive action to fulfil the commitment would collectively be powerful enough to have significant impact on inflation

BOJ’s commitment to achieving the 2 percent inflation target will never be compromised

Am confident BOJ can achieve its inflation target with “unwavering determination”
