Statement of the Monetary Policy Committee 11 December 2019

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Central Bank of Iceland has decided to keep the Bank’s interest rates unchanged. The Bank’s key interest rate – the rate on seven-day term deposits – will therefore remain 3%. According to recently published national accounts figures, output growth measured 0.2% for the first nine months of the year. Although this is slightly stronger growth than the Central Bank forecast in November, overall developments year-to-date are in line with the Bank’s projections.
