According to the minutes, the Bank of Japan will assess risks and adjust policies when necessary.
BoJ members share the view that CPI may rise, consistent with the April outlook. One member said, CPI will approach the target level of 2% by the end of 2016 fiscal year.

One official said he is uncertain whether revenue growth will increase spending.
