Mexico’s central bank was divided in its decision to keep the key interest rate at a decade high Thursday, with one board member voting for a quarter-point cut as the economy sputters.

“We still believe interest rate cuts this year are likely, but expect policy makers to wait until inflation is lower before moving,” said Felipe Hernandez, a Latin America economist at Bloomberg Economics.
