In the Euro Area, benchmark interest rate is set by the Governing Council of the European Central Bank. The primary objective of the ECB’s monetary policy is to maintain price stability which is to keep inflation below, but close to 2 percent over the medium term. In times of prolonged low inflation and low interest rates, ECB may also adopt non-standard monetary policy measures, such as asset purchase programmes. The official interest rate is the Main refinancing operations rate. .

Latest Updates

ECB officials agreed that there were some signs of stabilisation in the Eurozone growth slowdown, and that downside risks to the outlook had become somewhat less pronounced, the accounts of the December meeting showed. Policymakers also noted that measures of underlying inflation remained generally subdued, although there were some indications of a mild increase, while some members voiced concerns about the possible side effects of the September monetary policy measures, including the potential impact of negative interest rates on households savings and consumption dynamics.
