Statement on Monetary Policy May 2018
The Statement on Monetary Policy sets out the Bank's assessment of current economic conditions, both domestic and international, along with the outlook for Australian inflation and output growth. A number of boxes on topics of special interest are also published. The Statement is issued four times a year.
The May 2018 issue of the Statement on Monetary Policy includes a number of changes to the structure and format of the document to make it easier to read. The new chapter ‘The International Environment’ combines content previously found in the ‘International Economic Developments’ and ‘International and Foreign Exchange Markets’ chapters. This new chapter also includes the outlook for global growth. Section headings within chapters are more narrative in style to provide a guide to content.
The material in this Statement on Monetary Policy was finalised on 3 May 2018.
