BOK cuts policy rate to 1.25%

기준금리 연 1.25% 또 인하… 22년만에 역대 최저

BOK cuts policy rate to 1.25%


The Bank of Korea cut the policy interest rate for the second time in three months on Wednesday to support slowing economic growth and address mounting deflationary pressures.


It slashed its policy rate by a quarter percentage point to 1.25 percent, marking the lowest level since June 2016.


The move came as the country's exports have dipped for 10 consecutive months since December, plunging 11.7 percent on-year last month.


In September, South Korea also posted its first-ever negative growth in consumer prices, which dropped by 0.4 percent from the same month last year.


The Bank of Korea President Lee Ju Yeol has insisted the low inflation has largely been caused by a base effect created by a surge in prices of agricultural products last year.
