Mozambique Holds Key Interest Rate at 12.75%
The Central Bank of Mozambique left its benchmark MIMO interest rate unchanged at 12.75 percent during its October meeting, after a 50 bps cut in the previous session, saying that military instability in the central and northern areas of the country, climate shocks and global trade tensions pose serious risks to the inflation outlook. Still, policymakers noted that current projections point to a low inflation in the medium-term, supported by currency stability, while the economy is seen recovering from 2020 but to remain below its potential.
