The European Central Bank (ECB) will continue to raise interest rates rapidly to curb inflation that remains too high, he declared on Monday ECB President Christine Lagarderepeating to a great extent the most recent orientations of the institution.
“We have made it clear that ECB interest rates will have to continue to rise significantly at a steady pace to reach levels that are sufficiently restrictive, and remain at those levels for as long as necessary,” Lagarde said in a speech.
“In other words, we will stay the course to ensure the timely return of inflation to our target,” he added.
Still, the ECB’s Laragre says inflation is too high and the euro is recovering after the speech.
