Angola Monetary Policy November 2020

Angola: Central Bank maintains interest rate in November

The Monetary Policy Committee of the National Bank of Angola maintained its basic reference rate at 15.50% at its 27 November meeting, where it has been since 24 May 2019.

The decision to stand pat came against a global backdrop of lingering economic uncertainty due to the pandemic and below-target inflation, with the Bank expecting inflation to reach the 25.0% target in the current fiscal year. Moreover, the Bank stated that current liquidity levels in the banking sector were within the intended limits.

The Bank noted that it will continue on the path towards price stability and monitor all monetary factors affecting inflation. In 2021, panelists expect the Bank to ease its stance to help the economy regain momentum in the wake of the pandemic-induced contraction.

The next monetary policy meeting is scheduled for 28 January 2021.
