The central bank of Korea has kept its interest rate steady.

The central bank has kept its key interest rate at a record low for an 11th straight month on Friday. The seven-day repurchase rate of the bank was kept at two per cent in a monetary policy meeting that was attended by representatives of the finance ministry for the first time in a decade. The bank had cut the rate six times from October 2008, but has left it unchanged since last March.

In a statement, the Ministry of Strategy and Finance emphasised 'the need for policy co-ordination between the government and central bank during times of crisis.'
