Key Interest Rate Raised

Published torsdag 4 september 2008 kl 09.48
Sweden's central bank

The Swedish central bank said Thursday it has decided to raise its key interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 4.75 percent to counter inflationary pressures.

According to a statement released by the central bank the so-called repo rate is expected to remain at this level during the year. At the same time, the bank conceded that the economic growth was “unexpectedly weak” but this would not indicate a necessity to lower interest rates in the near future.
