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. Since then, the Bank Board has repeatedly confirmed the validity of this exchange rate commitment. At its most recent meeting on 2 February 2017, the Bank Board stated again that the CNB would not discontinue the use of the exchange rate as a monetary policy instrument before 2017 Q2. The Bank Board considers it likely that the commitment will be discontinued in mid-2017.
