Peru’s central bank decided to raise the policy rate for an eleventh straight month by 50 basis points to 5.5% in June 2022, in line with expectations as it seeks to curb soaring inflation that has accelerated to a more than two-decade high. The country’s annual inflation rate rose 8.09% in May from 7.96% in the previous month, the highest since 1998, driven by significant increases in global food and energy prices amid the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The bank expects the annual inflation rate to begin on its downward path in July of this year due to the reversal of various factors affecting inflation and its outlook. “The board is especially attentive to new information regarding inflation and its determinants, including the evolution of inflation expectations and activity to consider further changes in the monetary policy stance that guarantee the return of inflation to the target range in the projected horizon,” the bank said. source: Central Reserve Bank of Peru
