Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) has maintained the policy rate unchanged at 16%.

Speaking to the media at a news conference Friday, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr Ernest Addison said the decision was as a result of some threats to the country's economic growth and inflation outlook.
