The Central Bank of the Republic of Taiwan held its key discount rate at a record low of 1.125 percent on September 23rd 2021, as expected.

Accordingly, the central bank has raised its inflation and underlying inflation forecasts for 2021 to 1.70 percent (vs 1.60 percent previously) and 1.17 percent (vs 1.11 percent previously), respectively. Meanwhile, 2021 economic growth was revised higher to 5.75 percent (vs 5.08 percent previously), driven by booming exports of technology and transfer products, as global demand for semiconductor chips soared during recovery. Looking at 2022, the central bank put growth forecasts at 3.45% and set inflation expectations at 0.92%. source: Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)
