Did you know...
that the Czech National Bank is headed by a seven-member Bank Board? All members are appointed (for a maximum of two six-year terms) and recalled by the President of the Czech Republic.
At its extraordinary monetary policy meeting on 6 April 2017, the Bank Board of the Czech National Bank decided to discontinue the use of the exchange rate as an additional instrument for easing the monetary conditions. By taking this step, the CNB returned to the conventional monetary policy regime, in which interest rates are the main instrument. The koruna exchange rate may thus fluctuate in either direction depending on demand and supply. However, the CNB stands ready to use its instruments to mitigate potential excessive exchange rate fluctuations.
