Banco de la República has adopted, as a good practice in its communications policy, a blackout period in the seven days prior to the meeting of the Board of Directors. During this time, no interviews will be granted to media outlets, and no invitations to participate actively in public events will be accepted. Likewise, bank employees will not make public presentations or give statements, nor will they meet with investors, analysts or journalists.
Under the exceptional circumstances facing the country's economy as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors of Banco de la República will also assess the economic conditions and monetary policy in May, August, and November 2020, or as required due to the atypical economic conditions.
