SINTRA, Portugal (Reuters) - The Japanese economy could suffer “quite significant” consequences if a trade war between the United States and China drags on, Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Wednesday.

“The indirect impact on the Japanese economy could be quite significant ...if this escalation of tariffs between the U.S. and China continues,” Kuroda told an ECB conference in Sintra, Portugal.
