Turkish central bank sees year-end inflation notably below projections

Published: Updated:

Turkey’s central bank said on Thursday recent forecast revisions suggest inflation is likely to be notably below the projections of its July inflation report by the year-end, as it cut its policy rate by 250 basis points.

“At this point, the current monetary policy stance, to a large part, is considered to be consistent with the projected disinflation path,” the bank said in its statement after its monetary policy committee meeting.

The bank lowered its benchmark one-week repo rate to 14.0 percent from 16.5 percent.
