It should be noted, that claims on the economy in foreign currency, expressed in USD, increased during the reference period by USD 30.5 million (3.2%).

The increase in the balance of claims on the economy in the domestic currency was determined by the increase of claims on other resident sectors (including individuals) by MDL 720.3 million (4.0%), the balance of claims on the non-financial commercial companies, which majority ownership is private by MDL 259.8 million  (2.0%), the balance of claims on the non-banking financial sector by MDL 31.9 million  (5.3%), while the balance of claims on the sector of non-financial commercial companies, which majority ownership is public decreased by MDL 16.8 million (2.5 %).
