Meetings with Parliamentary committees and related reports

The Act on the Central Bank of Iceland stipulates that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Central Bank of Iceland shall submit to Parliament (Althingi) a report on its activities twice a year and that the contents of the report shall be discussed in the Parliamentary committee of the Speaker’s choosing. Initially, the MPC met with three committees at a joint meeting of the Economics and Tax Committee, the Commerce Committee, and the Budget Committee. Following amendments made to the Act on Parliamentary Procedure, the Economic Affairs and Trade Committee has been entrusted with functions relating to the MPC report.
