Monetary aggregate M3 declined in March 2012 by LTL 96.6 million, whereas its annual growth rate slightly decelerated at the end of the month, standing at 14.3 per cent. The decline in M3 was mostly determined by the decline in deposits with an agreed maturity of up to 2 years. The increase in credit to general government over the month determined the growth of domestic credit by LTL 111.9 million. The growth of domestic credit of LTL 940.5 million over the year was determined by the increase of loans to general government and debt securities issued by it.

All three monetary aggregates (M1, M2 and M3) grew over the year by 17.0 per cent, 13.3 per cent and 14.3 per cent respectively. At the end of March, M1 made up LTL 30.8 billion, M2 was LTL 49.7 billion and M3 stood at LTL 50.1 billion.
