Serbian Interest Rate Cut

September 11, 2015

On September 10, the National Bank of Serbia’s one-week repo rate was cut by 50 basis points for a sixth time since March.  The rate has fallen from 8% at the start of the year to the new level of 5.0%.  A released statement stresses, weak growth, low inflation, well-anchored expected inflation and the recent downward revision made by the ECB staff of projected growth in the common currency area.  Monetary officials also reduced the reserve requirement ratio.
