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 policymakers discussed a bigger cut in asset purchases and some even argued that markets were already expecting an end of stimulus by March 2022, minutes from the ECB September monetary policy meeting showed. Still, the ECB concluded that a moderately lower pace of net asset purchases under the PEPP for the rest of the year would be appropriate, amid favourable financing conditions along with an improved medium-term outlook for inflation. The ECB has also lifted its growth and inflation forecasts for this year. Inflation is now seen at 2.2% in 2021 (vs 1.9% estimated in June), 1.7% in 2022 (vs 1.5%) and 1.5% in 2023 (vs 1.4%). Regarding growth, the bloc's economy is expected to expand by 5% in 2021 (vs 4.6%), 4.6% in 2022 (vs 4.7%) and 2.1% in 2023 (vs 2.1%).
