Mozambique’s central bank held its benchmark MIMO interest rate steady at 13.25% during its September 2021 meeting. Policymakers said the decision was based on prospects of single-digit inflation, despite the prevalence of high risks and uncertainties, especially those arising from the impact of the Covid-19. The annual inflation stood at 5.6% in August, after 5.5% in July, in a context of lesser depreciation of the metical against the US dollar. The Committee also confirmed the projections for a gradual recovery of the economy in 2021 and 2022, mainly supported by the external demand. Additionally, the Bank decided to reduce the mandatory reserve coefficients for liabilities in national currency from 11.50% to 10.50% and in foreign currency from 34.50% to 11.50%, aiming to provide more liquidity to the economy. source: Banco de Moçambique
