Czech Central Banker Zamrazilova Sees Unchanged Interest Rates, Tyden Says

Czech central bank board member Eva Zamrazilova expects interest rates to stay unchanged at the next policy meeting as she sees neither strong inflationary pressures nor deflation risks, Tyden reported, citing Zamrazilova.

“I would rather expect stability, although it is really an open issue,” the Prague-based weekly quoted Zamrazilova as saying in an interview.

Zamrazilova, who voted for the benchmark two-week repurchase rate to stay unchanged at a record low 1 percent at the last monetary meeting on March 25, said on April 13 she will not attend the next rate-setting session scheduled for May 6.
