Bank of Lithuania

Monetary aggregate M3 declined in January 2012 by LTL 497.2 million, whereas its annual growth rate made up 15.0 per cent at the end of the month. The decline in M3 was mostly determined by the decline in overnight deposits and currency in circulation. For the first time since October 2008, consumer loans by monetary financial institutions (MFIs) to resident households increased by LTL 8.8 million. Loans in euro prevailed among loans to residents, with the exception of MFIs: they made up 68.6% of total loans at the end of the month and declined slightly due to an increase in the share of loans in litas.

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