The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) of the Reserve bank of Malawi, at its first meeting for 2020 held on 29th and 30th January, decided to maintain the Policy Rate at 13.5 percent and the Lombard Rate at 0.4 percentage points above the Policy Rate.

The Committee also maintained the Liquidity Reserve Requirement (LRR) on local currency deposits at 5 percent, and the LRR on foreign currency deposits at 3.75 percent.


"In arriving at the decision, the Committee observed that although rising maize prices are likely to continue pushing up headline inflation in the first quarter of 2020, the elevation is deemed temporary and does not pose significant risks to the medium-term inflation outlook." the central bank said in a statement.
