FRANKFURT, May 12 (Reuters) – European Central Bank policymaker Peter Kazimir dropped a hint about a July interest rate increase on social media on Wednesday, joining a growing number of colleagues in calling for a hike to tackle record-high inflation.
“(I am) ready to hike in July — and not just the beautiful Atlas Mountains here in #Morocco,” the Slovak governor wrote on Twitter.
He added he was in the North African country for the annual meeting of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
