In December 2012, the net external assets of monetary financial institutions (MFIs) contracted by LTL 402.0 million and stood at LTL 9.7 billion. Broad monetary aggregate M3 increased by LTL 858.5 million over the month, with its annual growth of 7.2 per cent at the end of the month. The increase in M3 was driven mainly by an increase in overnight deposits of LTL 1.3 billion. Domestic credit increased by LTL 486.5 million over the month as a result of an increase in credit to other residents and general government, while over the year, it grew by LTL 1.7 billion. The share of other MFIs’ loans to households denominated in euros declined gradually from 73.2 per cent (at the end of December 2011) to 71.3 per cent (at the end of December 2012), with the respective increase in the share of loans denominated in litas.
