The MPC noted increased optimism for growth prospects in the economy and that inflation expectations are well anchored within the Government target range. The Committee noted that there was some room for accommodative monetary policy in the near term, as well as the risk of perverse outcomes. It concluded that there was need to further monitor and assess the impact of its policy actions. Therefore the MPC decided to retain the Central Bank Rate (CBR) at 10.0 percent and continues to monitor the impact of the interest rate caps on the effective transmission of monetary policy.
