ECB president Lagarde: Risks surrounding euro area growth outlook have become more balanced

  • Downside risks remain in the near-term, there is no room for complacency

  • The ongoing vaccination campaigns, together with the gradual relaxation of containment measures underpin the expectation of a firm rebound in economic activity in the second half of 2021.

  • The ECB will continue to deliver on its mandate and support the recovery with all appropriate measures.

  • ECB to continue monitoring developments in the euro exchange rate

  • PEPP will be implemented flexibly according to market conditions

  • Step-up in the run-rate of PEPP will become visible when ascertained over longer time intervals (short-term disrupted by noise, such as lumpy redemptions)

  • If favourable financing conditions can be maintained, don't need to use full PEPP envelope if it is not exhausted

  • We stand ready to adjust all of our instruments.

  • Our key ECB interest rates to the governing council’s forward guidance and the asset purchase programme – make a crucial contribution.
