TOKYO, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Japan's banking system remains
stable as a whole and has sufficient buffers against risks,
including the possibility the economy may take some time to
recover from the scars of the coronavirus pandemic, the central
bank said on Thursday.
"The Bank of Japan will strive to maintain financial system
stability and smooth functioning of financial intermediation,
while continuing to work closely with the government and
overseas financial authorities," the BOJ said in a semi-annual
report on Japan's banking system.
