MANILA, July 21 (Reuters) – The Philippine central bank was not considering another off-cycle policy action at a regular meeting of its policymaking Monetary Board on Thursday, Governor Felipe Medalla told Reuters.
When asked if the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) was considering any policy action, Medalla replied “no” via a phone message. The BSP raised key interest rates by a hefty 75 basis points a week ago, making a surprise, more forceful move to curb inflation.
