Japan's central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged Tuesday, acknowledging worries about falling prices and other risks to the nation's still-fragile economic recovery.
The Bank of Japan's policy board decided unanimously at the end of a two-day meeting, to keep the overnight call rate at a super-low 0.1 percent. The rate hasn't changed since December 2008. The bank says the world's number 2 economy is showing some signs of recovery, on the back of an overseas turnaround with exports and production increasing. But it acknowledged Japan is still fighting deflation.
