  • Bahrain News

Bahrain’s central bank cut its key interest rates by 75 basis points (bps) on Monday, following the U.S. Federal Reserve, which slashed its rates to near zero a day earlier to bolster the economy as the coronavirus epidemic spreads.




The Central Bank of Bahrain cut its interest rates on overnight, one-week and one-month deposits by 75 bps to 0.75%, 1.00% and 1.45% respectively. It cut its lending rate by the same level to 1.7% from 2.45%.
