Pakistan central bank holds rates at 15%

Pakistan's central bank on Monday held its main policy rate at 15 per cent, the bank said in a statement, flagging it would closely watch inflation data and global commodity prices.

"Looking ahead, the MPC (monetary policy committee) intends to remain data-dependent, paying close attention to month-on-month inflation ... as well as global commodity prices and interest rate decisions by major central banks," the State Bank said in a statement.

The decision, which was largely in line with analysts' expectations, came after the bank hiked rates by 125 basis points at its previous policy meeting in July as the country experienced surging inflation.

Pakistan is in economic turmoil with fast depleting foreign reserves, an historic depreciation of the rupee against U.S. dollar and soaring inflation.

The decision comes ahead of an crucial meeting by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington next week, at which the bank said it was expected to approve $1.2 billion tranche of lending.

Pakistan's annual consumer price inflation reached 24.9 per cent in July, the highest in 14 years, according to the country's statistics bureau.

However, the bank said in its decision that there were signs that inflationary demand pressures were easing, which justified holding rates steady.
