Japan and India on Friday expanded an arrangement for swapping their local currencies against the US dollar, raising the size to as much as USD 50 billion from the original USD 15 billion.
The expanded swap arrangement, signed by Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and his Indian counterpart Raghuram Rajan, will be effective until December 2015, the BOJ said in a statement on Friday.
The swap arrangement aims to counter any short-term liquidity problems the two countries may face in future. "This expansion of the bilateral swap arrangement will contribute to the stability of global financial markets including emerging economies," the BOJ statement said.
