Not expecting a recession in Australia

Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Philip Lowe said on Friday that he does not expect a recession in Australia but acknowledged that there is a narrow path back to low inflation, as reported by Reuters.

Earlier in the week, Lowe noted that they will discuss the raising policy rate by either 25 or 50 basis points at the next policy meeting.
