The Nigerian central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee will announce the outcome of its two-day meeting tomorrow.
In May, the committee kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at a record 12 percent for a fourth consecutive meeting to bolster the naira and curb an inflation rate at an 18-month high.
Zambia’s central bank will today decide when its monetary policy committee will meet. The Bank of Zambia last month left its benchmark rate unchanged at 9 percent for a third straight time as inflation in Africa’s biggest copper-producing nation accelerated.
