Taiwan c.bank leaves policy rate unchanged, as expected

TAIPEI, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Taiwan’s central bank left its policy rate unchanged on Thursday, as expected, amid signs the island’s export-dependent economy is bouncing back from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The central bank kept the benchmark discount rate at 1.125%, where it has stood since March when it lowered the rate to a historic low.

All 17 economists in a Reuters poll had expected the central bank to hold fire in the quarterly monetary policy meeting. (Reporting by Liang-sah Loh and Yimou Lee; Writing by Ben Blanchard; Editing by Ana Nicolaci da Costa)
