BANGKOK Feb 21 Thailand's central bank will not
leave interest rates at very low levels, the central bank
governor said on Thursday, adding that it had spotted signs of
speculation in the property market in some areas.
Bank of Thailand Governor Prasarn Trairatvorakul did not
specify any timeframe for his comment on rates.
Speaking to reporters, he also noted that property prices in
general were not too high.
On Wednesday, the central bank's monetary policy committee
left its policy rate unchanged at 2.75 percent by a 6-1 vote,
with one member voting for a cut..
Prasarn has said leaving interest rates low for too long
could lead to financial imbalances.
