Inflation Rate in DR Congo
Inflation rose to 17.0% in March (February: 16.8%). Meanwhile, the Central Bank raised its policy rate by 75 basis points to 9.00% on 22 March due to upside inflation risks. In 2023, our panelists expect inflation to accelerate from 2022 due to a combination of strong domestic demand and elevated food prices. Potential fiscal stimulus in an election year is an upside risk.
