Singapore eases monetary policy sharply as virus heralds deep recession

By Administrator_India Capital Sands Singapore’s central bank aggressively eased its monetary policy on Monday, as widely expected, with the city-state’s bellwether economy bracing for a deep recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MAS said it would adopt a zero percent annual appreciation rate for its Singapore dollar policy band, known as the Nomina...
