TOKYO (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Friday the central bank would scrutinise “without pre-conception” risks to its view that overseas economies would recover later this year and underpin exports.

“If overseas growth takes longer than expected to pick up, Japanese companies – manufacturers in particular – could become cautious about spending on capital expenditure,” Kuroda said in a speech at a seminar.
