The National Bank of Hungary (MNB) raised the rate for its one-week deposit facility by 125 bp to 13% ahead of a tender on Thursday, keeping it in tandem with the base rate, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The council said after the meeting that it was "warranted" to raise the one-week deposit rate by the same degree as the base rate.
