Botswana Interest Rate  2006-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

The Central Bank of Botswana left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 5 percent on October 22nd 2018, as widely expected. Policymakers said that the decision is consistent with keeping the inflation rate within the medium term target range (3-6 percent). The annual inflation rate decreased to 2.9 percent in September from 3.0 percent in August, below the lower bound of the target range, mainly due to lower cost of transport and it is expected to be within the objective range in the medium term. The economy expanded 4.4 percent in the twelve months to June and it is projected to improve in the short to medium term driven by a recovery in the mining sector and services. Interest Rate in Botswana averaged 9.65 percent from 2006 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 15.50 percent in June of 2008 and a record low of 5 percent in October of 2017.
