The National Bank of Hungary held its benchmark base rate unchanged at 0.6 percent and the overnight deposit rate at -0.05 percent on March 23rd 2021, as expected after the annual inflation rate climbed to 3.1 percent in February, within the 3 percent (+/- 1 percentage point) NBH’s medium-term target. The central bank sees inflation reaching 5 percent in the second quarter of 2021, before returning to the target range, because of higher fuel prices and tax changes. At the same time, the overnight and one-week collateralised lending rates were also kept at 1.85 percent. source: National Bank of Hungary
