BOJ will squeeze policy meeting into a single day

Central bank adopts social distancing after ruling out teleconference

A BOJ policy meeting in September 2017: Social distancing is not part of business as usual at Japan's central bank.

TOKYO -- The Japanese central bank will cut its next policymaking meeting short to one day instead of two and take other steps to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection at the closed-door talks.

Bank of Japan policymakers will convene on April 27, the BOJ said. On the agenda will be unlimited buying of Japanese government bonds and a doubling of purchases of corporate debt, Nikkei has learned.
