BoJ holds fire on new easing measures
(05-21 11:21)

The Bank of Japan on Wednesday held off expanding its monetary easing campaign and said the world's number three economy was picking up pace, despite fears a sales tax rise will dent consumer spending.
Policymakers unanimously agreed to keep the central bank's stimulus programme unchanged after a two-day meeting. Investors are now awaiting a statement by BoJ governor Haruhiko Kuroda at about 3:30 pm local time. --AFP
