The article discusses an economic outlook for Czech Republic for 2011. The country was expected to have no rate hikes in the present year. The benchmark interest rate will remain on hold at .75 percent in the said year, and was forecasted to boost by 1.25 percent in 2012. Moreover, economists believe that the nation's consumer price inflation will remain to be moderately low due to the monetary easing of the Czech National Bank.
