ECB Knot: There is very good reason to expect robust recovery in H2

ECB Governing Council member, Dutch central bank chief Klaas Knot, said “there is very good reason to expect a robust recovery in the second half of the year.” And, “if the economy develops according to our baseline, we will see better inflation and growth from the second half onwards.”

“In that case, it would be equally clear to me that from the third quarter onwards we can begin to gradually phase out pandemic emergency purchases and end them as foreseen in March 2022,” he added.

Knot was also comfortable with higher nominal rates, if they are “entirely due to higher inflation expectations”. “To the extent that higher nominal yields are driven by better inflation and growth prospects, to me that’s entirely benign.”
