Chairman and chief executive Arthid Nanthawithaya said on Thursday the MRR (Minimum Retail Rate) would drop to 6.87 per cent and the interest rate on fixed deposit accounts would also be reduced by 0.25 percentage point.
He said the bank believed the new rate would help reduce operating costs for its SME clients and ease living expenses for individuals.
“We are especially committed to helping SME operators, who are suffering from the impact of the international trade war and the slowdown in domestic spending,” Arthid said.
