Bank of Lithuania

In February 2013 the net external assets of monetary financial institutions (MFIs) increased by LTL 1.2 billion and stood at LTL 10.9 billion. Domestic credit, with the increase of credit to general government, increased over the month by LTL 1.0 billion. Broad monetary aggregate M3 grew by LTL 975.6 million over February, and its annual growth rate accelerated from 5.8 per cent to 7.4 per cent. The M3 growth was determined mainly by the increase in deposits and currency in circulation (LTL 784.8 million and LTL 140.0 million, respectively). The share of other MFIs’ loans to households denominated in euro declined gradually from 73.2 per cent (at the end of December 2011) to 71.0 per cent (at the end of February 2013), with a respective increase in the share of loans denominated in litas.

The above data was released by the Statistics Department of the Bank of Lithuania.
