Eurozone rates on hold again

Despite a slowdown in the 12-nation zone, the bankers today (Thursday) decided not to adjust the rate of 2%.

The last time the ECB changed its rate was in June 2003 when borrowing costs were reduced by 0.5%.

The decision by the ECB follows a similar decision by the Bank of England today (Thursday) to hold the UK interest rate at 4.75%.
