The Japan’s main price indexwhich excludes food, rose again by 2.1% year-on-year in May, holding for the second consecutive month at its highest level in seven years, official data showed on Friday.

In April, inflation exceeded the 2% threshold set by the Bank of Japan for the first time since March 2015, which, unlike financial institutions in other developed economies, has decided to maintain its flexible monetary policy.
