The central bank of Taiwan increased its key discount rate to 1.75% in December of 2022 from 1.625%, in line with market forecasts and pushing borrowing costs to the highest since 2015. Policymakers noted that although inflation declined in recent months, it is expected to remain above 2% this year before dropping to below 2% next year. The central bank Governor told that if it's certain that the inflation rate is below 2%, the bank will stop raising interest rates, although there is still a lot of uncertainty. Meanwhile, the Taiwanese economy is expected to grow at a slower pace next year, as exports and investment face headwinds from the anticipated global economic downturn compounded by rising downside risks. GDP growth was cut to 2.91% from 3.51% for this year and to 2.53% from 2.9% in 2023. source: Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)
