A Chinese Bank Takes Steps to Minimize Risks as it Supports International Trade


Taiwan central bank maintains interest rates

Taiwan's central bank maintained its interest rates amid a stable inflation and economic growth outlook.

The Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan) kept its discount rate unchanged at 1.375%, and the rates on accommodations with and without collateral at 1.75% and 3.625%, respectively.

The bank projects a stable inflation outlook for Taiwan next year with an annual price growth rate of 0.77% and expects steady economic expansion at 2.57%, supported by a resilient global economy despite political uncertainty.

The improvement in U.S.-mainland China trade relations and improved domestic production led to stronger exports last month, while private investment rallied and pushed up domestic demand, the bank said.

The central bank said it will continue its accommodative monetary policy to maintain price stability and support growth while keeping a close eye on international political developments, global corporate debt concerns and China's economic slowdown.
