The National Bank of Serbia hiked its main interest rate by 50bps to 2.5% during its June 2022 meeting, the third straight rise in borrowing costs, and in line with market forecasts. Interest rates are now at their highest level since 2019, amid the Ukraine conflict, a further spike in prices of agricultural commodities and industrial raw materials, and ongoing supply chain constraints. The inflation in Serbia continued to rise to hit nine-year highs of 9.6% in April but is expected to slow in the second half of the year. Further interest rate increases will depend on geopolitical developments and both national and international factors weighing on the inflation. source: National Bank of Serbia
