Colombia's central bank holds benchmark interest rate steady at 4.5 pct, as expected
BOGOTA Jan 30 (Reuters) - Colombia's central bank kept its key lending rate unchanged for a fifth straight month on Friday, in an effort to boost slowing economic growth amid declining oil revenue and mounting problems in Europe.
The seven-member board voted to maintain the lending rate at 4.5 percent, meeting the forecast of analysts in a Reuters survey this week. (Reporting by Bogota newsroom)
