CBJ’s deposit window interest rate now stands at 4.00%. The repo rate stands at 4.75%, and the rediscount rate at 5.00%
Gross domestic borrowing (including transfers to the national electricity company and other public enterprises) hit JOD 11.51bn at end-February, comprising 48% of the forecast 2013 GDP.
