The Swedish Riksbank's Repo rate decision on 8 April 2014

Economic activity is clearly strengthening, but inflation is expected to remain low for some time. Monetary policy needs to remain expansionary for inflation to rise towards the target. The Executive Board of the Riksbank has therefore decided to hold the repo rate unchanged at 0.75 per cent. The repo rate is expected to remain at this low level for around a year. It is considered appropriate to wait until inflation picks up before beginning to raise the repo rate. The repo-rate path has been adjusted down somewhat and reflects a greater probability of a repo-rate cut in the near term compared with the assessment made in February.
