About Monetary Policy Forums:
 
The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is responsible for monetary policy in South Africa. SARB uses several channels to communicate and create a better understanding of monetary policy among its stakeholders, including the public. One of these communication channels is through the Monetary Policy Forums (MPFs), which are held twice a year in each province of South Africa.  At MPFs, a panel comprised of senior SARB representatives present recent domestic and international developments that have impacted on inflation, and that motivate the rationale behind SARB’s monetary policy stance. Relevant topics such as the inflation outlook, the factors impacting it, and SARB’s inflation and economic growth forecasts are presented to the public, who are invited to comment in response to recent policy developments.
