Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The Bank of Japan (BoJ) has left its key interest rates unchanged but has upgraded its view for the Japanese economy.

Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) said the economy was performing better than expected when it considered monetary policy earlier this month, but decided to keep rates steady for the time being because of uncertainty at home and abroad, according to reports.
