Jordan's central bank cuts benchmark interest rates by 25 bps

AMMAN, Oct 30 (Reuters) - The Central Bank of Jordan said on Wednesday that it was cutting benchmark interest rates by 25 basis points to 4 percent in a move to encourage local consumption and investment needed to spur growth, effective Oct. 31.
