This was the first meeting since the new president was elected in September. Policymakers noted that inflation stabilised at 6.7 percent in September 2019 while underlined the slow pace of economic growth, which should not exceed 1.4% in 2019, mainly due to weak performance of export-oriented and extracting activities’ sectors.
