Chile's central bank held its benchmark interest rate at a record low of 0.50% on 30 March 2021, as widely expected. Policymakers noted that global activity has been surpassing expectations as economies adapt to the pandemic. The Committee underscored that domestic inflation continues to hover around 3% and that risks and readings remain in both directions, and added that inflationary pressures have been observed in gasolines and fruits & vegetables. Policymakers reiterated that they will maintain a strong monetary stimulus for an extended period to ensure that its objectives are achieved. The Committee foresees that it will hold the MPR at its minimum level over a big part of the two-year monetary policy horizon and will maintain the unconventional measures in place, thus continuing with the current asset purchase program. source: Banco Central de Chile
