TAKE A LOOK-Asia c.banks: Philippines, New Zealand hold rates

    The Philippine central bank left its benchmark interest rate
steady at its policy review, the first under its new governor
Nestor Espenilla, with inflation on track to stay within its
target amid solid economic growth.
    Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Graeme Wheeler said
monetary policy would remain accommodative for a while yet, and
kept interest rates at a record-low 1.75 percent, as expected.
