CAIRO - Qatar's central bank said on Thursday that it will reduce the amount allocated for the zero rate repurchase window to 25 billion Qatari riyals starting April 1.

It also raised the repo rate by 25 basis points to 1.25% after taking into account the evolving domestic and international macroeconomic developments, the banking watchdog said on Thursday.
