BOJ’s Kuroda to appear in parliament at 0524 GMT: sources

TOKYO (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda is scheduled to appear in parliament at 0524 GMT (14:24 Japan time) on Wednesday, two sources said.

Kuroda will be speaking a day after the Federal Reserve cut interest rates to shield the U.S. economy from the impact of the coronavirus.
