The Bank of Korea has kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at point-seven-five percent for April.
This follows the central bank's decision last month to slash rates at an emergency meeting called as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Three more bonds issued by special banks will be included, including industrial financial debentures.
In addition, it will also cover mortgage backed securities issued by the Korea Housing Finance Corporation.
The central bank will also expand bonds eligible for repurchase agreements.
