澳大利亚央行将利率维持在0.25%不变

悉尼,6月2日(新华社)——周二,继6月央行月度会议之后,澳大利亚的官方利率维持在0.25%不变。


澳大利亚央行(RBA)采取了谨慎的做法,正如大多数经济观察人士在2019冠状病毒疫情动荡期间所预期的那样。


澳洲央行总裁Philip Lowe解释称,尽管澳洲经济正经历一段非常困难的时期,但衰退程度可能不像最初预期的那麽严重。


“在过去的一个月里,许多国家的感染率都有所下降,对活动的限制也有所放松。如果这种情况继续下去,全球经济复苏将在大规模财政刺激计划和货币政策大幅放松的支持下开始。”


“从全球来看,金融市场的状况继续改善,尽管一些市场的状况仍然脆弱。波动性已经下降,信贷市场已逐步向更多公司开放。”


澳大利亚央行做出这一决定之际,人们再次提出,澳大利亚可能会走向负利率,就像欧盟(eu)、日本和其他几个国家已经出现的情况一样。


然而,劳仍然反对这一想法,相反,他鼓励政府实施财政刺激,以帮助经济复苏。

 

SYDNEY, June 2 (Xinhua) -- Australia's official interest rate remained on hold at 0.25 percent on Tuesday, following the June monthly meeting of the country's central bank.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) took a cautious approach, as was expected by most economic observers in the midst of COVID-19 volatility.

Governor of the RBA, Philip Lowe explained that while Australia's economy was going through a very difficult period, it is possible the downturn may not be as severe as initially expected.

"Over the past month, infection rates have declined in many countries and there has been some easing of restrictions on activity. If this continues, a recovery in the global economy will get under way, supported by both the large fiscal packages and the significant easing in monetary policies," Lowe said.

"Globally, conditions in financial markets have continued to improve, although conditions in some markets remain fragile. Volatility has declined and credit markets have progressively opened to more firms."

The decision came amid renewed suggestions that Australia could be headed for a negative interest rate as, was already the case in the European Union, Japan and a handful of other countries.

Lowe however, has remained resistant to the idea and instead encouraged government fiscal stimulus to help the economy recover.
