After a two-day meeting of Group of 20 finance ministers and just before Sunday's elections, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda vowed to stay on course with sharp monetary easing, saying he had global support. Kuroda also said he wasn't pressed on Japan's economic policies by G20 finance ministers at this meeting, a change from the spring meeting, where there were suspicions the central bank was merely trying to drive down the yen.
