Inflation on Track

Posted by Katrina Parrington on February 4, 2011

The Reserve Bank said that underlying inflation will remain within its target band in 2011, despite recent natural disasters.

In its Statement on Monetary Policy released today, the RBA said that the medium-term outlook for underlying inflation was largely unchanged, and is expected to be measured around 2.5% later in 2011, before picking up gradually to 3% by late 2012.

The RBA said the near-term forecast for year-ended underlying inflation had been revised down a little since November.

“In terms of headline inflation, the floods are expected to add around a quarter percentage point to CPI inflation in the March quarter – mainly through higher fruit and vegetable prices – with much of this being reversed in the following quarter,” the Statement read.

However, the RBA said it would not react to the short-term effects of natural disasters.

“The focus of monetary policy will remain on the medium-term prospects for economic activity and inflation. At its recent meeting, the Board judged that in view of the general macroeconomic outlook, the current setting of monetary policy remained appropriate.
