International Reserves, September 2002
At the end of September 2002, international reserves made up LTL 7,609.0 million (USD 2,154.7 million, EUR 2,203.7 million). In the course of one month they increased by LTL 115.1 million, i.e. 1.5 per cent.
The growth of international reserves was determined by the net purchase of anchor currency by the Bank of Lithuania from commercial banks and transactions with central government institutions, increasing the reserves by LTL 35.2 million and LTL 34.6 million, respectively. The reserves were also pushed up by net inflows of the Bank of Lithuania from investment in foreign currencies and an LTL 12.5 million increase in Bank of Lithuania repurchase transactions with non-residents.
