(Updated - June 18, 2024 9:31 AM EDT)

Federal Reserve Bank of New York President and CEO John Williams told Fox Business in an interview Tuesday that he expects interest rates to come down gradually over the next couple of years.

When asked whether he sees one rate cut this year, Williams said, "It depends how the data evolves."

"The US economy is doing well," added Williams, adding that the labor market is strong. "we're seeing very good signs of supply and demand coming back into balance."

While noting that inflation is also coming down, Williams reiterated that the Fed's decisions will be data-dependent, but he thinks "things are moving in the right direction."

"I expect interest rates to come down gradually over the next couple of years, reflecting the fact that inflation is coming back to our 2% target and the economy is moving in a very strong, sustainable path," Williams told Fox Business.
