The Riksbank's Monetary Policy Report is published six times a year. The report describes the deliberations made by the Riksbank's executive board when deciding what would be an appropriate monetary policy to conduct. The report also contains a description of the future prospects for inflation and economic activity based on the interest rate path that the Riksbank's executive board currently considers will provide a well-balanced monetary policy. Each report also contains a description of the new information received since the previous report and an assessment of how the Riksbank views the current economic situation.
The purpose of a monetary policy report is to produce background material for monetary policy decisions, and to spread knowledge about the Riksbank's assessments.
