TOKYO -- The Bank of Japan will continue to take a persistent stance when it comes to monetary easing, even after the COVID-19 pandemic abates, until the goal of 2% inflation is reached, Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda told Nikkei in an exclusive interview.

This signals a markedly different stance from central banks in the U.S. and Europe, which have started to explore ways to reduce monetary easing.
