(Bloomberg) — The Bank of Japan may increase its forecast for inflation to reflect higher material costs when the board meets later this month, the Yomiuri newspaper reported, without saying where it got the information.

The central bank’s outlook for price trends for the fiscal 2022, currently at 0.9%, will be raised to 1% or higher, according to the report. The board is scheduled to hold a policy meeting on Jan. 17 and 18, when it is expected to its review quarterly guidance on prices.
