The impact of excess reserves on the effectiveness of monetary policy transmission in Papua New Guinea

Thomas Wangi, PhD Student, CAMA

The banking system in Papua New Guinea has recorded extraordinary growth of excess reserves in recent years. The accumulation of high levels of excess reserves may have undesired implications on the effectiveness of monetary policy transmission. Hence, the paper presented in this seminar employs the structural VAR model to measure the effects of the structural one-standard-deviation shock to excess reserves on the lending rate, the private sector loans, the exchange rate, the CPI and real GDP using monthly data from January 2002 to December 2017.
