G20 - BOJ's Kuroda says weaker oil prices a plus for global economy

ISTANBUL, Feb 9 (Reuters) - The recent slide in global oil prices is a benefit for the world economy and could lead to some upgrades of economic forecasts, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Monday.

“For the world economy, without a doubt, weaker oil prices are a plus,” Kuroda told reporters on the sidelines of the G20 meeting of finance ministers and central bankers in Istanbul. (Reporting by David Dolan; Editing by Nick Tattersall)
