RBNZ MPS/OCR and FSR dates for 2011

Release date
18 August 2010

The following is the Reserve Bank's schedule for the release of its 2011 quarterly Monetary Policy Statements, the intervening Official Cash Rate announcements, and the six-monthly Financial Stability Reports.

Each Monetary Policy Statement includes within it an OCR announcement, so, as usual, in total there will be eight OCR announcements during 2011. Each announcement will be made at 9.00 am on the day concerned.

For the first time, the Bank is also adding the first six months' dates for the following year to assist financial markets' planning, but these 2012 dates are provisional, subject to confirmation in August 2011.
