Japan central bank keeps extreme easing steady

Japan's central bank has ended a two-day policy meeting with an upbeat assessment for the world's No. 3 economy and a pledge to persist with its aggressive monetary easing policies aimed at ending years of growth-sapping deflation. The stronger assessment followed a revision of data to show growth recovered to 4.1 per cent in January-March, raising hopes that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's heavy-spending recovery strategy may be helping end a two-decade-long slump.(AP Photo/Yasuaki Sako, Pool) JAPAN POOL, JAPAN OUT
