 After the Reserve Bank of Australia kept the key interest rate unchanged at a record low, saying low rates continued to support the economy. The decision was widely expected by economists.

The Australian Federal Reserve, ruled by Philippe Lowe, voted to keep the monetary interest rate at 1.50%. The bank cut interest rates by 25 basis points in August and May last year.
