The central bank of Georgia left the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 11 percent on December 21, 2022. Policymakers noted that signs of price stabilization were seen on international commodity markets, and that the country’s inflation has retreated from its peak, still remaining at a high level but will move at a downward trajectory, supported by strengthening lari. However, uncertainty is still high and risks to inflation are mostly on the upside, given the current geopolitical conditions. Furthermore, the target level for inflation has long deviated away, amplifying inflation expectations. On a brighter note, the current level of economic activity surpassed its potential, but impedes slowdown in consumer prices. Therefore, monetary policy will remain tight until a clear trend of declining inflation is observed. source: National Bank of Georgia

Georgia Holds Interest Rate Steady at 11%
The central bank of Georgia left the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 11 percent on October 26th, 2022, saying inflation retreated from its peak but it is still high and amounted to 11.5 percent in September. The central bank noted that inflation will remain high until the end of the year, but will continue to gradually decline and will approach the target level in the second half of 2023. Because of the existing inflationary risks, tight monetary policy will be maintained and its normalization will gradually begin only after a clear trend of decreasing inflation will be observed. Policymakers also added that further tightening of policy or maintaining the current tight stance for a longer period may become necessary if inflation expectations rise further and/or additional demand pressures on prices arise.

Georgia Keeps Interest Rate Steady at 11%
The central bank of Georgia left the benchmark interest rate unchanged at 11 percent on September 14th, 2022, saying headline inflation maintained its downward trajectory and reached 10.9 percent in August. Inflation will tend to decline further both this and next year and other things equal will gradually approach the target level from the middle of 2023, policymakers added. Still, future trends largely depend on geopolitical outlook. Therefore, monetary policy will remain tight until upward risks to inflation expectations are sufficiently mitigated. Should inflation expectations rise further and/or demand-side pressures on prices exacerbate, further tightening of policy or maintaining the current tight stance for a longer time period might become necessary.
