Reserve Bank of Australia’s Governor Phillip Lowe is participating on the panel at the Australian’s 2020 Strategic Forum.
He has said that Australia needs to keep a strong trade relationship with China.
Yesterday, Lowe said that the RBA would consider negative interest rates only if all major central banks took their rates below zero, an “incredibly unlikely” scenario.
Lowe reiterated that negative rates were still “extraordinarily unlikely” in Australia, adding that the only benefit of sub-zero monetary policy was downward pressure on the country’s currency.
