Interest rates are largely determined by inflation and economic growth. According to the Ministry of Trade and Industry , Singapore’s Consumer Price Index (CPI), an indicator for inflation rate, rose at a more moderate rate of 5.5 per cent in December compared to the same month in the previous year on the back of a smaller increase in the cost of private road transport. For the full year of 2011, inflation stood at an average of 5.2%. The Monetary Authority of Singapore reported an expectation of inflation in 2012 to average between 2.5% and 3.5%.
