Economic calendar in Asia – Friday, 24 February 2023 – Japan CPI data, BOJ’s Ueda speaking

I’ve jumped the gun on “BOJ’s Ueda”, he hasn’t been officially approved or installed as the next Bank of Japan Governor. Today he is appearing the Japanese Parliament, the Diet, for a hearing in front of the lower house at:

9.30am Tokyo time
0030 GMT
7.30pm US Eastern time

This will be the first time we’ve heard from Ueda publicly since his nomination.

As I posted earlier this week, a couple of times:

  • Bank of Japan Governor-nominee Kazuo Ueda speaks in a confirmation hearing in the lower house of the Japanese parliament on Friday, 24 February.
  • This’ll give us the first clue of his views on the direction of monetary policy since he became the draft pick. Some sort of move towards policy normalization is widely expected, but the timing is very uncertain.
