The Bank of England has left the main rate at around 0.75%. The decision was made during the meeting on 1 November.

Procurement volumes of government and corporate bonds were also maintained, meeting the experts’ expectations.

The bank has reduced its outlook for the economic growth in 2018 and 2019 – to 1.3 and 1.7%, respectively. The forecast for the year 2020 has remained the same – 1.7%.

Inflation in the country will remain at the level of more than 2%. The Central Bank stressed that the economic overheating should be expected next year. That’s why the need to increase the rate may arise earlier than expected.
