Monetary Policy Statement and OCR

We publish our Monetary Policy Statement (MPS) quarterly. This includes any changes to the official cash rate (OCR).

Wednesday, 19 February 2025 to Wednesday, 19 February 2025
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

At 2pm we publish:

  • the official cash rate
  • our Monetary Policy Statement
  • our media release about the Monetary Policy Statement.

The Monetary Policy Statement media conference starts at 3pm. We will put a link to the livestream here before it starts.

Monetary Policy Statement announcements are made to financial markets at 2pm (NZST) and then to the news media, and via Twitter, the website and email.

We reserve the right to make changes to timing if required due to unexpected developments. In that unlikely event, we would give the markets and the media as much warning as possible.
