首尔,8月27日(新华社)——韩国中央银行预计,由于新冠肺炎疫情的经济影响,韩国今年的实际GDP将下降1.3%。


韩国央行(Bank of Korea, BOK)下调了5月份公布的经济增长预期,此前韩国央行预计经济将下滑0.2%。这将标志着自1998年外汇危机扰乱经济以来,日本经济首次出现负增长。


实际GDP预计在2021年增长2.8%,低于此前预期的3.1%。


今年和明年的整体通胀预期分别为0.4%和1.0%。


韩国央行在利率会议结束后发表声明称,由于新冠肺炎疫情的再度爆发,韩国国内经济复苏速度将慢于预期,并承诺将维持其宽松的货币政策。


央行将目标利率维持在0.50%的历史低点不变。继3月份降息50个基点以应对病毒蔓延造成的经济低迷之后,今年5月央行又降息25个基点。

 

SEOUL, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's central bank expected the country's real GDP to contract 1.3 percent this year due to an economic fallout from the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Bank of Korea (BOK) revised down its growth outlook from the estimate of a 0.2-percent fall announced in May. It would mark the first negative growth since the foreign exchange crisis roiled the economy in 1998.

The real GDP was forecast to expand 2.8 percent in 2021, lower than the previous outlook of a 3.1-percent increase.

Outlook for headline inflation was set at 0.4 percent this year and 1.0 percent next year respectively.

The BOK said in a statement after the rate-setting meeting that the domestic economy's recovery would be slower than expected owing to the resurgence of COVID-19, vowing to maintain its accommodative monetary policy.

The central bank left its target rate unchanged at an all-time low of 0.50 percent. The bank cut the rate by 25 basis points in May, after slashing it by 50 basis points in March to tackle the economic downturn from the virus spread.
