Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda delivered a firm message to financial markets regarding potential policy adjustments, particularly emphasizing concerns about the weakening yen. Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki echoed this sentiment, affirming the government’s readiness to implement all necessary measures as required.
