Thailand Interest Rate Unchanged at Record Low
The Bank of Thailand unanimously decided to leave its key interest rate at a record low of 0.5% at its March meeting, as expected, as the economic recovery remained fragile amid a slow recovery in global tourism and soaring coronavirus infections in the country. The monetary policy committee assessed that the average inflation rate will exceed target at 4.9% in 2022 before returning to the settling lower at 1.7% in 2023, while the economic recovery wouldn’t be affected by the sanctions against Russia. Thus, GDP is seen rising 3.2% this year and 4.4% in the following, supported by growing domestic demand and tourism, however, material shortages and higher cost of living could dampen growth. The committee stressed that it will continue to put emphasis on supporting the economic recovery but will closely monitor key factors affecting the inflation outlook.
