The Central Bank of Mauritius decided unanimously to keep its key repo rate unchanged at a record low of 1.85% during its December of 2021 meeting, pointing the current monetary policy stance remains appropriate and supportive of economic recovery. On the domestic side, the full re-opening of borders and the on-going vaccination campaign, including deployment of booster doses, are strengthening economic recovery. However, the onset of the Omicron variant has brought some uncertainty to the tourism sector. Accordingly, the Bank has revised its growth rate projection for 2021 to around 5%. Policymakers also noted that domestic inflation has maintained its upward momentum on the back of upward price pressures emanating from both food and non-food products on the back of supply shocks, which are expected to subside in the medium term. In the absence of any further exogenous shocks, the Bank is projecting headline inflation at about 4% for 2021. source: Bank of Mauritius

Mauritius Holds Key Interest Rate at 1.85%
The Central Bank of Mauritius decided unanimously to keep its key repo rate unchanged at a record low of 1.85% during its July of 2021 meeting, saying the current monetary policy stance remains appropriate and supportive of economic recovery. The real GDP growth is seen at 5.5% in 2021, as the recovery of the domestic economy should gain momentum with the re-opening of borders for international travel. Improving external demand, accommodative monetary policy conditions and the government’s support measures are also expected to contribute positively. Policymakers noted that global inflation has been on the rise recently mostly due to higher commodity prices but is expected to be transitory and fade away in 2022. Subsequently, and in the absence of further external shocks, headline inflation is projected at about 3.5% for 2021.
