The minutes of the previous monetary policy meeting of the Banking Board of the Czech National Bank (ČNB) were published today. Most of the members sought a clear procedure when deciding on interest rates and did not want to surprise the market, so they favored a decrease of 0.5 percentage point to 5.75 percent. Vice-governor Jan Frait and council member Tomáš Holub were in favor of a faster drop in rates with regard to current economic data.
