The Swedish Repo Rate unchanged at 1 per cent

There are now increasing signs confirming that economic activity is beginning to improve. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 1 per cent to give continued support to the economic upturn and to contribute to inflation rising to the target of 2 per cent. The repo rate needs to remain at the current low level until economic activity is showing a clearer improvement and inflation has risen for a while. As before, the repo rate is not expected to be raised until the end of 2014.
