Monetary policy

According to the Sveriges Riksbank Act, the objective for monetary policy is "to maintain price stability". The Riksbank has interpreted this objective to mean a low, stable rate of inflation. More precisely, the Riksbank's target is to hold inflation in terms of the CPIF around 2 per cent a year.
