Statement by the Governor
July 6, 2015
Bank of Japan
The report on the result of the Greek referendum on July 5 shows that the votes against the latest reform agenda by the institutions concerned are likely to exceed those in favor.
Although direct economic and financial linkages between Japan and Greece are limited, the Japanese Government and the Bank of Japan remain fully prepared to deal with possible developments in Greece. In this respect, the Japanese Government and the Bank of Japan convened a meeting this morning.
The Bank of Japan, in close cooperation with relevant domestic and foreign authorities, will continue to carefully monitor developments in financial markets.
