Bank of Japan board member Hajime Takata urged the central bank to start discussing the potential end of its ultra-loose monetary policy. He emphasised the importance of considering all scenarios, including negative ones and monitoring domestic interest rates and bond yields.

Flexibility in the withdrawal of stimulus measures is crucial to maintain the effects of the accommodative monetary policy.
