The Swiss National Bank held its policy rate at -0.75 percent and the interest rate it charges on overnight deposits it holds for commercial banks at -0.75 percent during its March meeting, saying the Swiss franc remains highly valued, despite the recent weakening, and the coronavirus pandemic continues to have a strong adverse effect on the economy. Policymakers noted that the recovery is likely to regain momentum from the second quarter, helped by the expected progress with vaccination programmes, alongside the monetary and fiscal policy measures introduced worldwide. Looking forward, the SNB continues to expect GDP growth of 2.5 percent to 3 percent for 2021, as the containment measures in Switzerland will be eased further in the coming months, while inflation forecasts for 2021 and 2022 were revised higher, due to the rise in oil prices and the weaker Swiss franc. The forecast now stands at 0.2 percent for 2021, 0.4 percent for 2022 and 0.5 percent for 2023. source: Swiss National Bank
