BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungarian rate-setters voted unanimously to raise the base rate by 100 basis points to 5.4% on April 26, the minutes of the meeting showed on Wednesday.

“The Monetary Council would continue the cycle of interest rate hikes until the outlook for inflation stabilised around the central bank target and inflation risks became evenly balanced on the horizon of monetary policy,” it said.

The next regular policy meeting is due on May 31.
