The Czech National Bank held its benchmark two-week repo rate unchanged at 0.25% on May 6th of 2021, as expected. Policymakers said the bank should be careful not to undermine the economic recovery by prematurely tightening monetary conditions but were receptive to start raising interest rates this year. Inflation edged higher to 2.3% in March, near a 16-month low of 2.1% hit a month earlier, and within the central bank’s 1% - 3% tolerance band. The central bank Governor admitted the bank’s growth forecast of 2.2% in 2021 could be downgraded in the next outlook. The Lombard rate and the discount rate were also kept at 1% and 0.05%, respectively. source: Czech National Bank
