Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Taiwan’s central bank left interest rates unchanged yesterday, ending five straight quarters of increases as price pressures ease and a faltering global recovery threatens its export-dependent economy.
The central bank kept the discount rate on 10-day loans to banks at 1.875 percent. Fourteen of the 17 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News predicted the decision. Three expected an increase to 2 percent.
