WARSAW--The National Bank of Poland left its interest rates unchanged Wednesday, in line with expectations and earlier guidance.

The central bank last cut its main rate in March 2015, when it trimmed it to 1.5%, its lowest rate on record.

The central bank will discuss its decision later Wednesday.

Since the previous policy meeting, Poland's statistics office said consumer prices were up 0.8% in annual terms in December, the first increase since mid-2014. The central bank's inflation target is 2.5%.

Poland's central bank governor, Adam Glapinski, has said he expects rates to remain unchanged until early 2018.
