TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s government and the central bank will hold a meeting on Wednesday morning to discuss market developments in the wake of Britain’s vote to leave the European Union, government sources said on Tuesday.

Such meetings may be held on a regular basis as financial markets remain volatile, the sources said.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe summoned a similar meeting on Monday, where he instructed Finance Minister Taro Aso to stay alert to recent currency market developments.
