RTTNews - Thursday, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas held its key interest rate unchanged at 4%, in line with expectations. The interest rate on overnight lending or repurchase facility is kept at 6%.

The decision to maintain the monetary policy stance comes after a series of policy rate cuts since December 2008 totaling 200 basis points and other liquidity enhancing measures, the central bank said.
