In Japan, interest rates are set by the Bank of Japan's Policy Board in its Monetary Policy Meetings. The BoJ's official interest rate is the discount rate. Monetary Policy Meetings produce a guideline for money market operations in inter-meeting periods and this guideline is written in terms of a target for the uncollateralized overnight call rate.

Latest Updates

The Bank of Japan left its key short-term interest rate unchanged at -0.1% and kept the target for the 10-year Japanese government bond yield at around 0% during its January meeting, by a 7-2 vote. At the same time, policymakers revised up their growth projection for the 2019 fiscal year beginning in April to 0.9% from an estimate of 0.7% made in October, supported by fiscal stimulus and easing trade tensions. The central bank also upgraded its growth estimate for fiscal 2021, while price forecasts were held steady, showing inflation will remain under the 2% target at least until early 2022.
