Thai Central Bank Says Growth To Slow on Floods, Global Economy

Members of the Monetary Policy Committee, which voted six- to-one to maintain the policy interest rate at 3.5 percent, are concerned about the impact of the still-evolving flood situation, the minutes show.
Although inflation remained high and warranted close monitoring, upside risks were limited, the central bank said.
