§ 1. The Riksbank’s repo rate
Deputy Governor Lars Heikensten stated that the assessment of economic and financial developments in Sweden and elsewhere, the inflation prospects and the appraisal of the situation for monetary policy did not currently call for a change in the repo rate.
He therefore proposed a fixed rate repo with a duration from the 14th to the 21st of April 1999 at an unchanged rate of 2.90 per cent and a fixed rate repo with a duration from the 21st to the 28th of April 1999 at an unchanged rate of 2.90 per cent.
The Executive Board decided in accordance with the proposal.
This minute was immediately confirmed.
