Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas

November 10, 2016

Filipino monetary officials decided to keep the 3.0% reverse repo rate unchanged after reviewing their stance. There hasn’t been a rate change since two closely spaced hikes in July and September of 2014. These, in turn, had reversed a percentage point of easing in 2012. Like 2015, 2013 saw no rate changes.

A released statement again called inflation manageable and projects a gradual upturn ahead that will stabilize around the 3% target range midpoint in 2017 and 2018. Expected inflation is in line with the target, buy forecast risks are skewed to the upside.
