The Central Bank of Uruguay raised its benchmark policy rate by 50 bps to 10.25% on August 15, 2022, lifting its key rate for the ninth consecutive meeting and signaling more increases in the coming months. The bank, however, acknowledged signs of slowing global economic growth and easing inflationary pressures, but maintains a tightening stance as inflation and related expectations remain above target. In Uruguay, economic activity continued its recovery in the second quarter, which is maintained in the third, although at a somewhat more moderate pace. The bank expects to tighten further in the upcoming meetings as it aims to converge interest rates and inflation expectations within the target range by the end of this year. source: Banco Central del Uruguay
