LOERRACH, Germany (Reuters) - An expansive monetary policy is still appropriate in the euro area but the European Central Bank may want to consider making its message more balanced as inflation rebounds, the head of Germany's central bank said on Monday.

"The current, expansive monetary policy is still appropriate," the Bundesbank's President, Jens Weidmann, told an audience in Loerrach, Germany.

"One can ask whether the ECB council should slowly start considering an exit from the very easy policy and make its communication somewhat more symmetric."
