The Bank of Japan decided to keep interest rates unchanged at its lowest level of 0.10% meeting market forecasts. The Bank said it will watch its financial lending program that has been declared two weeks ago to know its final effect on the financial markets in Japan.

The Bank of Japan has declared two weeks ago about buying the corporate debts, with a value of 10 Trillion yen, after the yen's appreciation to the highest in 14 years against the dollar. The bank's aim behind that decision is to increase the money supply of the yen in the financial markets, which will lower its value to avoid the negative effect on Japanese exports, one of the main pillars for economic growth.
