The Bank of Mexico has changed its schedule for monetary policy decisions for the rest of this year so its meetings closely follow those of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the policy-making body of the U.S. Federal Reserve.
"The new dates will allow the Board of Governors take account of the latest information about the Federal Reserve's policy decisions when making their deliberations," Mexico's central bank said.
The Bank of Mexico's board of governors is scheduled to meet four times in the second half of this year and has changed the dates for its July, September, October and December meetings.
Prior to the change, the governors met before the FOMC.
Given the extensive trade between the United States and Mexico, the monetary stance of the Fed, which is expected to raise its rates this year, affects the exchange rate of the peso and inflationary expectations.
Following is an update of Central Bank News' calendar of meetings by central bank committees that decide monetary policy. The calendar, which can always be accessed here, covers the rest of this year and takes into account the new dates by the Bank of Mexico.
