The weakening of the koruna

Koruna In November 2013, the Czech National Bank decided to use the koruna exchange rate as an additional instrument for easing the monetary conditions.
During 2015, the Bank Board repeatedly stated that the CNB would not discontinue the use of the exchange rate as a monetary policy instrument before the second half of 2016. At its most recent meeting on 5 November 2015, the Bank Board discussed extending the duration of the exchange rate commitment. It agreed that its discontinuation would probably shift to around the end of 2016.
