TOKYO Authentic Derwin James Jersey , June 30 (Xinhua) -- Japan's core consumer prices rose 0.4 percent from a year earlier in May, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said in a report on Friday.

"People tend to act on the assumption that wages and prices won't rise... But the job market is tightening further, so we will likely see that pushing up sales prices. We expect inflation to gradually accelerate ahead," the central bank's chief said following the conclusion of a two-day policy board meeting.
The central bank raised its economic assessment and increased its real gross domestic product (GDP) growth forecast for the 2017-18 fiscal year to 1.6 percent from the 1.5 percent forecast in January.
"Japan's economy has been turning toward a moderate expansion. Overseas economies have continued to grow at a moderate pace on the whole," the BOJ said in a statement.
The bank, however Craig Mager Jersey , lowered its core consumer price index (CPI) growth forecast to 1.4 percent from 1.5 percent in the same period, however.
"The bank will continue with 'quantitative and qualitative monetary easing, with yield-curve control,' aiming to achieve the price stability target of 2 percent, as long as it is necessary for maintaining the target in a stable manner," the central bank said.
The core CPI for Tokyo's 23 wards Denzel Perryman Jersey , which is widely seen as barometer of future price moves in the country as it's released a month earlier than the nationwide data, was flat in June.
