CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 31 (Reuters) - Richmond Federal Reserve Bank President Jeffrey Lacker made no comments on the economy or monetary policy in introductory remarks to a credit symposium hosted by his bank.

In the past, Lacker has voiced skepticism about the Fed's ultra-loose monetary policy and argued that its $600 billion government bond purchase program should be reviewed regularly.
