6:46 pm
are quite a surprise today experts thought that this would most likely happen later this year we are learning that interest rates will be lowered from 1.75 to a level of only 1.5 percent this is the 1st time this is happening for since 3 years that the south korean central bank is making a decision like that and it said that they have to decide to do so in order to help the economy to recover a little bit of growth expectations have been declining there and also the inflation rate is lower than expected it is believed that it g.d.p. growth of south korea will be only a fall off a level of 2.2 percent this will be the slowest growth in the country since more than a decade and south korea is just like germany every export oriented country while this is happening the monetary fund the i.m.f. has one that global trade is slowing and it is urging countries to avoid further conflicts and we've got a very interesting statement from the i.m.f. chief economist let's listen in. this year's external sector report shows that the
