The SBP will announce the monetary policy decision through a press release on the same day, the statement added. The MPC kept the policy rate unchanged at 22 percent in its last meeting, citing a stable inflation outlook and a gradual recovery in economic activity. Analysts expect the MPC to maintain the status quo in the upcoming meeting.
