Standard & Poor’s: increased interest rate and dram appreciation should help bring inflation more toward 4% target

YEREVAN, October 13, /ARKA/. To stem inflationary pressure, with consumer price index inflation peaking at 8.8% in August, the Central Bank of Armenia has hiked interest rates several times since December 2020, by a total of 300 basis points, Standard & Poor’s said in a report. This, and the recent dram appreciation, should help bring inflation more toward the 4% target over the coming 12-36 months.

‘We think that the Central Bank of Armenia’s monetary policy framework benefits from the institution’s high degree of operational independence and its improving credibility following effective efforts to anchor inflation expectations. The dram is free-floating, and the central bank intervenes from time to time, such as in 2020, to prevent disorderly market conditions. However, the relatively high dollarization and shallow domestic capital markets in local currency somewhat inhibit the country's monetary transmission channels,’ the ratings agency said.
