Monetary Policy Report, September 2020
The Swedish economy has now begun to recover after having fallen sharply in the spring. But the way back is long and fraught with uncertainty. To provide support to economic developments and help inflation to rise towards the target, the Riksbank is continuing its asset purchases and offering liquidity in all the programmes launched so far this year. The repo rate is held unchanged at zero per cent and is expected to remain at this level in the coming years. The programmes have had a calming effect on financial markets and helped to keep interest rates to households and companies low in the crisis.
