Very few people expect inflation to reach 2 percent. In addition, I see no change to inflation expectations. In these circumstances, raising the 10-year yield target cannot be considered. Even if the BOJ wanted to move, I don't think it could.

I didn't expect December retail sales to be strong because end-year private consumption wasn't strong. Prices have been rising but it's mostly due to the rise in energy prices, and domestic demand hasn't changed...We are looking carefully at whether this would lead to sustained inflation.

The weak yen helped a lot, but volumes show there is a genuine recovery in exports. There could be a slight moderation in exports after the year-end shopping season. However, the BOJ will view this data in a positive light.

Right now the economy is in a holding pattern, but I don't expect things to worsen from here on.

The upward revision is very slight, and when you exclude the impact of leap year growth is not that strong.
