Turkey's central bank on Thursday decided to leave its key interest rate unchanged at a record low as expected by economists.
The Monetary Policy Committee retained the one-week repo rate at 5.75 percent. The overnight lending rate was maintained at 11.5 percent and the borrowing rate at 5 percent.
In order to support financial stability, the MPC has approved an additional increase in the flexibility regarding the allowance to hold Turkish lira reserve requirements in foreign currency and gold.
It would be appropriate to preserve the flexibility of the monetary policy given the prevailing uncertainties regarding the global economy, the bank said.
