    • With another hike in December, “rates would be reaching sufficient levels so that inflation and expectations converge with the target range within the horizon of monetary policy,” the central bank said in a statement.
  • Separately, today Uruguay are to offer UYU5.8 billion of bills due Feb. 22, 2023
