Monetary Statistical Release 10/2006- Broad money (M3) increased by Lm30.0 million, or 1.0%, in August, with its annual growth rate edging up to 5.2% from 5.1% in July. Monetary growth stemmed from increased credit to the non-bank private sector and a rise in the net foreign assets of the banking system.

Narrow money (M1) contracted by Lm11.0 million, or 0.7%, in August. Deposits withdrawable on demand accounted for most of the fall, shedding Lm8.4 million, or 0.7%, mainly on account of a decline in Maltese lira deposits belonging to ‘other financial intermediaries and financial auxiliaries’ that reversed the previous month’s rise. At the same time, currency in circulation dropped by Lm2.6 million, or 0.5%. As a result, the year-on-year rate of growth of M1 slowed down to 1.8% in August from 3.3% in July. Click here for more...
