The National Bank of Angola cut its benchmark policy rate by 150 bps to 18% during its January 2023 meeting, after leaving it unchanged in November. It was the steepest rate cut since July 2018, based on the reduction in inflation observed throughout 2022 and on inflationary pressures, as well as on the alignment of monetary conditions with the medium and long-term inflation objectives. Inflation has been easing since February, reaching an over seven-year low of 13.86% in December of 2022, largely due to the appreciation of the kwanza, as well as the increase and regularity of the supply of goods, especially food products. The central bank governor said he expected Angola to end this year with inflation of 9%-11%. “If the current situation remains unchanged, we are in a position to continue on this path,” said Massano. He also predicted a 3.3% growth in GDP for 2023. source: National Bank of Angola

Angola Interest Rate
In Angola, interest rate decisions are taken by The National Bank of Angola (Banco Nacional de Angola). On May 24th 2018, the central bank unified the marginal lending facility rate and the basic interest rate, creating the BNA Rate (Taxa BNA) which became the new benchmark interest rate. Until then, the key rate was the Taxa Básica de Juro (Taxa BNA) and until October 2011 the official interest rate was the Discount Rate (Taxa de Redesconto).
