Fiji Interest Rate at 0.50 percent


The Reserve Bank of Fiji decided to maintain its overnight policy rate at 0.5 percent on February 23rd, 2017. Inflationary pressures are expected to be domestically driven, mainly from the impact of the tropical depression on prices for market items while price pressures from imported inflation are anticipated to remain low. Inflation outcomes were higher in January at 6.8 percent from 3.9 percent in December, as a result of tropical depression on prices of agricultural produce and the fallout of the lower value added tax rate implemented. Also, a better growth outlook of 3.6 percent is anticipated for this year following a 2 percent estimated growth in 2016, supported by favourable domestic sentiments and accommodative fiscal and monetary policy.
