The Central Bank of Armenia (CBA) was the first institution among its peers in the CIS countries that has moved to the fully-fledged inflation-targeting policy since January 2 2006. This policy provides that the primary goal of monetary policy, i.e. a low and stable inflation level is realized not only by following developments in the monetary base but also looking at other factors as well. In an inflation-targeting strategy, the primary tool is the refinancing (repo) rate which the Board of CBA sets each month.
