The Central Bank's 2015 monetary programme.


The Central Bank's (BCRA) 2015 monetary programme indicates that the main features of the current monetary policy framework -- characterised by an expansionary bias, foreign exchange controls and close monitoring of the informal exchange market -- will continue this year.


  • The government will prioritise exchange rate stability, at the expense of economic activity.
  • The BCRA will continue using the official exchange rate as a nominal anchor.
  • Foreign exchange controls may be extended to discourage devaluation expectations and to protect international reserves.
