Statement by Yasuchika Hasegawa, Chairman of Keizai Doyukai
On Affirmation of the Nominees
for the Governor and Deputy Governors of the Bank of Japan
March 15, 2013
Chairman, Keizai Doyukai
I appreciate the affirmation of the nominees for the governors and deputy governors of the Bank of Japan without delay at the Diet.
I would like the new governor, Mr. Haruhiko Kuroda, to fully exercise his competence by making the most of his insights in economy and finance, his broad human network both in and outside Japan, and his experience of management at international organizations.
In addition, I expect the Bank of Japan under the new management to implement powerful measures to revitalize and strengthen the Japanese economy, while firmly maintaining its independence through coordination with the financial policy and economic growth strategy set by the government.
