Angola Leaves Interest Rate Steady at 15.5%
The National Bank of Angola left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 15.50 percent during its October extraordinary meeting, saying that in order to consolidate the new floating exchange rate regime introduced in 2018, it was decided to remove the 2 percent margin on the reference exchange rate used by commercial banks in trading foreign currency in the interbank market and their customers. Among other measures, the bank also opted to maintain the 0 percent interest rate for the overnight liquidity-absorbing facility and adjust the reserve requirement ratio for national currency from 17 percent to 22 percent, in a bid to reduce the excess of Kwanzas in the market. Regarding the impact of the exchange rate liberalization on prices, the bank hopes it will be softened by the adoption of a measure allowing importers who use letters of credit to not have to wait 90 days to make payments abroad.
