MPS: SBP maintained the Policy rate at 7%


At its meeting on 28th May 2021, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) decided to maintain the policy rate at 7 percent. Since its last meeting in March, the MPC was encouraged by the further upward revision in the FY21 growth forecast to 3.94 percent. The MPC noted that this confirms the strength of the broad-based economic rebound underway since the start of the fiscal year, on the back of targeted fiscal measures and aggressive monetary stimulus. This positive momentum is expected to persist, translating into higher growth next year.
