Fed keeps interest rates near zero

美聯儲將維持基準利率

The US Federal Reserve on Wednesday kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at the record-low level of near zero, as the country grapples with slowing economic recovery amid surging COVID-19 cases.

隨着新冠肺炎病例激增,美國仍在努力應對經濟復甦放緩。

After concluding its first policy meeting of 2021, the Fed decided to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 0-0.25%.

1月27日,在結束2021年第一次政策會議後,美聯儲宣佈將基準利率保持在0%至0.25%區間不變。

"The path of the economy continues to depend significantly on the course of the virus," Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said at a virtual press conference Wednesday afternoon.

美聯儲主席傑羅姆·鮑威爾在當日下午的視頻發佈會上説:“未來經濟的發展仍在很大程度上取決於疫情進展。”

The Fed chief noted that following a sharp rebound in economic activity last summer, the pace of recovery has "moderated" in recent months, with weakness concentrated in sectors most adversely affected by the resurgence of the virus and greater social distancing.

鮑威爾指出,在去年夏季經濟活動大幅反彈後,近幾個月以來,經濟復甦的步伐“放緩”,經濟疲軟集中在受疫情反彈和社交距離擴大影響最嚴重的行業。

Despite the challenges, Powell said several developments point to improved outlook for later this year.

鮑威爾説,儘管存在這些挑戰,但有多個進展表明,今年晚些時候經濟前景將有所改善。

"Sufficiently widespread vaccinations would enable us to put the pandemic behind us and return to more normal economic activities," he said. "In the meantime, continued observance of social distancing and wearing masks will help us reach the goal as soon as possible."

他説:“大規模疫苗接種將使我們擺脱新冠疫情,恢復更為正常的經濟活動。與此同時,繼續保持社交距離和戴口罩將有助於我們儘快實現這一目標。”
