FACTBOX-Global interest rates in 2010

 (Updates with Australia rate rise)
 LONDON, April 6 (Reuters) - Australia's central bank raised its cash rate by
25 basis points to 4.25 percent on Tuesday and flagged further hikes ahead.
 As a result the average rate set by 11 leading central banks -- the five
that decide monetary policy for the G7 nations plus six other major banks --
rose to 1.09 percent from 1.07 percent.
 On May 7 last year, the European Central Bank cut its main interest rate by
25 basis points to 1.0 percent. As a result, the average rate set by central
banks of the Group of Seven nations fell to 0.40 percent from 0.45 percent.  
The following table of average rates is aimed at reflecting the movement of
official policy rates during the economic cycle rather than actual borrowing
costs.
