FRANKFURT Oct 6 The European Central Bank's
rate setters agreed the euro zone's economy needed continued
monetary support when they met in September, noting underlying
price growth showed no sign of recovery, minutes of the meeting
showed on Thursday.
"It was therefore of crucial importance to preserve the very
substantial degree of monetary support that was embedded in the
staff projections," the account of the Sept 7-8 meeting showed.
"There should be no doubt about the Governing Council's
determination to execute its asset purchases in line with its
past decisions and to adopt further measures, if needed, to
fullfil its price stability objective."
