National Bank of Serbia

March 17, 2016

Serbia’s key monetary policy interest rate was left unchanged in March.  Last year saw seven 50-basis point reductions between March and October, and an eighth cut, this time of 25 basis points, was enacted in February of 2016.  Inflation lies above target, but a released statement today predicts a downtrend coming that will return inflation to target sometime around late 2016/early 2017.  It is hoped that ” further monetary policy easing by the ECB in March this year should contribute to the mitigation of external risks.”
