WASHINGTON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Bank of Japan Governor
Haruhiko Kuroda said on Friday the central bank could ease
monetary policy further if needed, as it still had tools
available to prop up economic growth.

"It's not as if we have limited monetary policy space. If
needed, we could take additional easing steps," Kuroda told a
news conference after the conclusion of a Group of 20 finance
leaders' meeting in Washington.

"We will carefully analyze economic and price developments
in deciding whether such measures are necessary," he said.
