Wegotmail: Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas statement on the medium-term inflation path


The June 2024 inflation of 3.7 percent is within the BSP’s forecast range of 3.4 to 4.2 percent. The latest inflation outturn is consistent with the BSP's latest outlook that inflation will settle within the target range for 2024-2025 with inflation expectations remaining well-anchored.

The balance of risks to the inflation outlook has shifted to the downside for 2024 and 2025 due largely to the impact of lower import tariffs on rice under Executive Order (EO) 62 (Series of 2024). Nonetheless, higher prices of  food items  other than rice, transport charges, and electricity rates continue to pose upside risks to inflation.

The Monetary Board supports the National Government’s implementation of the reduction in the tariff on rice imports to address supply-side pressures on prices and sustain the disinflation process. Moving forward, the BSP will ensure that monetary policy settings remain in line with its primary mandate to safeguard price stability conducive to sustainable economic growth.
