2020-10-14 15:12

首尔,10月14日(新华社)——周三,韩国央行将基准利率降至历史最低水平,以应对新冠肺炎疫情对经济的影响。


韩国央行(Bank of Korea)总裁李柱立(Lee Ju-yeol)和六名货币政策制定者决定维持7天回购利率在0.50%的纪录低点不变。


韩国央行在今年3月将目标利率下调了50个基点,以应对COVID-19疫情造成的经济下滑,5月又将目标利率在当前水平上下调了25个基点。


利率冻结符合市场预期。根据韩国金融投资协会对200名固定收益专家的调查,100%的人预测利率将会暂停。

 

SEOUL, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's central bank on Wednesday froze its benchmark interest rate at an all-time low amid the lingering worry about an economic fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Bank of Korea (BOK) Governor Lee Ju-yeol and six monetary policymakers decided to leave the seven-day repurchase rate on hold at the record low of 0.50 percent.

The BOK lowered the target rate by 25 basis points to the current level in May, after slashing it by 50 basis points in March to tackle the economic downturn from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rate freeze was in line with market expectations. According to a Korea Financial Investment Association survey of 200 fixed-income experts, 100 percent predicted the rate put on hold.
