Analytical Accounts of the Bank of Lithuania
At the end of July 2002, reserve money made up LTL 4,224.1 million. Over a month this indicator contracted by LTL 56.7 million, of which currency outside the central bank grew by LTL 106.8 million. A LTL 182.3 million decrease in reserve money was determined by anchor currency exchange operations with commercial banks, while operations with central government pushed it up by LTL 96.2 million.
Foreign assets and central government deposits declined by LTL 849.5 million and LTL 831.4 million, correspondingly. The reduction of these indicators was mainly caused by the fact that for the redemption of the 1997 bond issue valued at USD 200 million the Government used the funds held in the Bank of Lithuania.
