Inflation eased to 8.6% in January from 8.7% in December. Inflation is seen cooling further in 2023 as commodity prices and domestic demand ease. That said, it will likely linger at elevated levels, stoked by a weaker taka. On 15 January, the Central Bank raised its key policy rate by 25 basis points to 6.00% to contain inflation.
