WARSAW May 17 Poland's central bank may not
need to raise interest rates from their current all-time lows
even by the end of 2018, the bank's Governor Adam Glapinski said
"In my opinion even by the end of 2018 there may not be a
need for an interest rate hike if inflation will at a level at
which it is forecast," he told a news conference.
Glapinski also said the central bank currently expects
inflation to remain at about 2 percent - below the bank's 2.5
percent inflation target - for a "longer" period of time.
