The Bank of Thailand on Wednesday decided to maintain the policy rate at 2.25 per cent, saying that the current rate is accommodative and appropriately supportive of economic recovery.

The Monetary Policy Committee, which rules on the policy rate, also viewed that the ongoing political situation poses risks to growth, but sound economic fundamentals should help the economy weather these short-term risks. In addition, safeguarding financial stability remains a cornerstone for economic recovery in the period ahead.
