A meeting of the State Bank's Monetary Policy Committee was convened for the second time this month, in which the country's economic situation was reviewed and the monetary policy was approved for the next one and a half months, and a policy statement was issued.

According to State Bank, in the meeting, it has been decided to increase the interest rate by 100 basis points i.e. 1 percent, after which the base interest rate has become 22 percent.

According to the State Bank, the inflationary scenario in the country has worsened, which may increase the pressure on the external account, some increases in taxes, duties, and PDL rates have been made in the budget.

According to the statement, the central bank has withdrawn its guidance to commercial banks on import preferences, adding to the upside risks to the inflationary scenario. But the easing of restrictions could put pressure on the foreign exchange market.
