In accordance with Section 55 of the Bank of Israel Law, the Monetary Committee presents the Government and the Knesset Finance Committee no less than twice annually a report on monetary policy. The report includes a survey of developments in the field of price stability and economic developments in the time period covered by the report, and the policy that the Committee believes necessary for the maintenance of price stability within the range determined by the Government and for the attainment of the Bank's other objectives. The reports are issued about a month after the end of each half-year. Appendices to the report contain tables with updated figures, which are used by policy makers. The Bank generally published this report before the Committee's appointment as well.
