The RBA has decided to maintain the official interest rate at the record low of 0.1%.
The RBA Governor Stephen Lowe’s latest media release emphasises that “financial conditions remain highly accommodative, with lending rates for most borrowers at record lows and asset prices, including housing prices, mostly increasing”.
Furthermore, the RBA forecasts that Australia’s recovery from the pandemic “is expected to continue, with the central scenario being for GDP to grow by 3½ percent over both 2021 and 2022”. The Governor has also stated that the conditions necessary for an increase to the cash rate will not “be met until 2024 at the earliest”.
