MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippine central bank "may or may not" raise interest rates at its policy meeting in August, its governor said on Friday, a day after it delivered an off-schedule 75 basis point rate hike to combat inflation.

The central bank will be "data dependent", Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Felipe Medalla said in a phone message.
