PR dla Zagranicy
The Monetary Policy Council has cut another 0.25 percentage points off Poland's borrowing rate, after its monthly meeting on Wednesday.
The reference rate is now at a record-low of 2.75 percent, with the lombard rate at 4.25 percent., deposit 1.25 percent and rediscount 3.00 percent.
The cut was in line with market expectations, with 23 of 24 economists surveyed by the PAP news agency predicting a cut in the cost of borrowing, as Poland's economy continues to slow after robust growth in recent years.
Since November last year, the MPC has cut rates by a total of 2.00 percentage points. (pg)
