Fed's Williams says some upside risks to inflation, need more data
SINGAPORE (Reuters) – San Francisco Federal Reserve President John Williams said on Tuesday there is some upside risk that inflation could hit the Fed’s target sooner, but more data is needed to make a convincing assessment.
Williams was answering a question at an event hosted by the National University of Singapore.
In a speech earlier, he said recent data reinforce his expectation that inflation is on track to move back to 2 percent over the next two years.
