The National Bank of Serbia (NBS) today (May 11) cut its headline interest rate for the third month in a row, citing "persistently subdued" inflation.
Annual CPI inflation came in at 1.9% in March, below the NBS's tolerance band of 1.5 percentage points either side of its 4% target.
The central bank cut its headline interest rate 50 basis points to 6.5%, continuing an easing cycle that began when rates hit a peak of 11.75% in March 2013.
