Following the surges of inflation in 2021-2022, which were driven by the energy shock, pandemic-related factors and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, euro inflation has already come down from the peak of 10.6 per cent in October 2022 to 2.8 per cent in February 2024. The latest ECB staff projections foresee inflation stabilising around the two per cent target from about the middle of 2025 onwards. In his speech, Philip Lane will discuss the ongoing process of disinflation in the euro area, the outlook for economic activity and the implications for monetary policy.
