Mozambique Holds Key Interest Rate at 15.25%
Mozambique’s central bank left its benchmark MIMO interest rate steady at 15.25% during its May 2022 meeting, leaving borrowing costs at the highest level since 2018. Policymakers said that the decision was made amid projections that the current rate can maintain inflation at single-digit levels in the medium term. The central bank noted that current economic conditions remain uncertain due to the geopolitical tension in Europe, with supply constraints pushing short-term inflation on the upside. Mozambique’s inflation accelerated to 7.9% in March, largely due to higher prices for energy and fuel. Regarding growth, the bank maintained the prospects of improving economic activity in 2022, supported by the relaxation of Covid-19 containment measures, the execution of natural gas projects and the resumption of the program with the IMF. Mozambique’s GDP grew by 4.1% in the first quarter of 2022.
