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.

Repo rate unchanged at 1 per cent

The Swedish economy is on the way to a recovery. At the same time, inflation is expected to be low for a while longer. Economic developments in Sweden and abroad have been largely in line with the Riksbank’s most recent forecast in April. The repo rate needs to remain low to support the economy and enable inflation to rise to the target of 2 per cent. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has therefore decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 1 per cent. Gradual increases in the repo rate are expected to begin during the second half of 2014, as assessed earlier.
