Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas

November 9, 2017

The Filipino reverse repo rate has been at 3.0% since a pair of 25-basis point hikes in July and September of 2014. A statement released by the Monetary Board after the last review considers 3.0% to still be an appropriate level even though risks to the inflation output lie a tad to the upside. Inflation is considered manageable overall and appears likely to officials to stay within the 2-4% target band over the coming two years. Expected inflation is anchored, and there are some downside risks to growth.
