TOKYO (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Wednesday that Japan’s economy is getting on track towards achieving a 2 percent inflation target as price hikes spread to a broader range of goods on the back of a narrowing output gap.

Kuroda, speaking in parliament, also said that the economy is recovering moderately.
