The inflation rate is likely to ease to a high single digit, and interest rate should revert to its long term 12%. Finally, foreign exchange will stay relatively stable but may weaken over the period, considering its historical ‘step’ trajectory.

This will support FX liquidity, with the Investors and Exporters window expected to continue to play a key role in ensuring currency market stability. Nevertheless, the multiple exchange rate environment may limit the inflow of FDIs, amid other concerns on regulations, fiscal/debt sustainability,
and challenges in the operating environment.
