Bank of Japan Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda

Will Kuroda leave before second term ends?

Some market watchers say incoming deputy governor will take over after two years

KOSUKE TAKAMI, Nikkei staff writer | Japan

TOKYO -- Now that Bank of Japan Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda has been tapped to serve a second term, BOJ watchers have moved on to the next question of whether he would stay for those entire five years.

Speculation about his possibly truncated tenure started last summer. Some Finance Ministry bureaucrats predicted back then that Kuroda would stay for only two years of his second term, arguing that BOJ Executive Director Masayoshi Amamiya, who is now a nominee for deputy governor, would take the helm after that.
