Must support the financing of face-to-face service industries.

Could consider extending corporate financing support if severity in funding persists.

2% inflation target will be achieved in 2024 or later.

Too early to debate specific exit strategy from monetary stimulus.

How to unwind bloated balance sheet and raising interest rates would be issues to consider when it comes to exit strategy.
