The European Central Bank (ECB) will have to be prudent to gradually adjust its monetary stimulus to the economic recovery, Mario Draghi, the president of the central bank, said Tuesday.
Speaking at the European Central Bank Forum in Sintra, Portugal, Draghi made it clear however that the current stimulus needs to remain in place as inflation dynamics remain “more muted than one would expect.”
“We can be confident that our policy is working and its full effects on inflation will gradually materialize. But for that, our policy needs to be persistent, and we need to be prudent in how we adjust its parameters to improving economic conditions,” Draghi said.
