The National Bank of Morocco held its monetary policy rate unchanged at 2.25% at its June 18th 2019 meeting. The bank noted that inflation was low during the first four months of the year; and it is expected to ease to 0.6% in 2019 from 1.9% in 2018, before rising to 1.2% in 2020, amid greater domestic demand. Linked to this, the government announced in late April a general increase in the minimum wages, with salaries in the private sector rising 10% over two years, with a 5% hike taking effect in July 2019 and a further 5% increase in July 2020. The economy is projected to slow to 2.8% in 2019 from 3% a year earlier, mainly due to lower agricultural output; but to speed up to 4% in 2020, as agriculture activity must rebound sharply, growing 6%. Interest Rate in Morocco averaged 3.77 percent from 1995 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 7 percent in August of 1995 and a record low of 2.25 percent in March of 2016.
