NBS FX reserves in September at EUR 11.1bn
NBS FX reserves stood at EUR 11.1bn at end-September, down by EUR 153.2 mn from end-August. This level of FX reserves covered 191% of money supply (M1) or around six months’ worth of the country’s imports of goods and services (almost twice the level prescribed by the standard on the adequate level of coverage of the imports of goods and services by FX reserves). The September reduction in FX reserves fully reflects the government’s effort – in an environment of solid fiscal results – to scale down its FX liabilities (EUR 193.7 mn net) on account of loans and securities, which contributes to a further reduction in public debt and improvement of its currency structure.
