BUCHAREST, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Romania’s central bank kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.50% on Thursday and cut the minimum reserve requirement on commercial banks’ hard currency liabilities to 5% from 6%.
A majority of analysts polled by Reuters this month had expected the bank to hold fire on interest rates.
The bank will detail its decisions in a statement at 1400 GMT. (Reporting by Luiza Ilie; Editing by Edmund Blair)
