Colombia central bank holds key rate at 4.5 pct, as expected
BOGOTA, March 20 (Reuters) - Colombia's central bank kept its key lending rate unchanged on Friday for a seventh straight month as economic growth has begun to ease while inflation has picked up pace.
The seven-member board voted to maintain the lending rate at 4.5 percent, meeting the forecast of a majority of analysts in a Reuters survey this week. (Reporting by Bogota newsroom)
