ISLAMABAD: Inflation has accelerated to a three-month high, reducing room for the State Bank of Pakistan to cut interest rates in its review this month.
According to Federal Bureau of Statistics, consumer prices rose 13.26 per cent from a year earlier after climbing 12.9 per cent in March.
State Bank Governor Syed Salim Raza indicated in February that he would wait for inflation to drop 10 per cent before moving to cut interest rates.
The State Bank of Pakistan is scheduled to review the key interest rate in the last week of this month.
