The Swedish Riksbank: Repo rate unchanged at 0.75 per cent

The prospects for 2014 are good, economic activity is strengthening and the labour market is improving. Nevertheless, inflation is expected to be low over the coming year. The repo rate needs to remain low to enable inflation to attain the target of 2 per cent. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has therefore decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 0.75 per cent.
