Bank of Lithuania

In March 2013 the monetary financial institutions’ (MFIs) net external assets went down by LTL 3.3 billion and amounted to LTL 7.6 billion. Domestic credit, with the growth of credit to the general government, increased by LTL 632.8 million over the month. In March broad monetary aggregate M3 increased by LTL 412.7 million, and its annual growth rate at the end of the month increased form 7.4 per cent to 8.4 per cent. The M3 increase was mostly due to the growth in deposits and currency in circulation (LTL 157.4 million and LTL 172.7 million respectively). The share of other MFIs’ lending to households in euro was declining steadily—from 73.2 per cent (at the end of December 2011) to 70.8 per cent (at the end of March 2013), with the respective increase of the share of loans in litas.
