Analysts estimate that the Bank of England (BOI) has maintained its base interest rate at 0.10% and its quotas level (QE) at $ 895 billion. According to a statement issued after the end of the monetary policy meeting on Thursday, all nine leaders of the Bank of England were unanimous in maintaining the base interest rate. In the case of the QE program, the vote was 8 to 1.

In that report, the BoE estimates that the UK’s economic growth outlook has improved since the release of its final forecasts in February, thanks to the strong pace of the vaccine against the Covid-19 vaccine and the fact that this activity has been more flexible than predicted by the regulatory measures that the British government believes will be suspended by the end of June.

“New Govt cases in the United Kingdom continue to fall, the vaccination program is advancing rapidly and restrictions on economic activity are being relaxed,” the British BC said.

BoE raised its UK growth forecast for this year to 5% to 7.25%. On the other hand, it reduced the forecast that British gross domestic product (GDP) would rise from 7.25% to 5.75% by 2022.
