The National Bank of Moldova (NBM) imposes a set of measures to prevent the COBID-19 spread and to ensure the further functionality of the financial and banking system of the country.

The National Bank of Moldova encourages the citizens to use cashless payment methods, such as internet applications and mobile payments, secure e-commerce payments and the cards for paying the goods and services in commercial points. These methods are more hygienic than the cash use and represent a good practice for preventing the spread of communicable diseases, including the COVID-19 virus.

The Executive Board of the National Bank of Moldova (NBM), by its Decision No 98 of 12.05.2022, decided to increase by 2 percentage points the systemic risk buffer rate for banks' exposures to credit risk related to resident individuals, except for individuals performing entrepreneurial activity.

At its meeting of 16.12.2021, the Executive Board of the NBM decided to repeal the temporary measures related to the requirements for the capital conservation buffer for banks, introduced in April 2020, and to return to the pre-pandemic requirements for the capital conservation buffer.

The year 2020 was an unprecedented year globally, marked by the pandemic crisis generated by COVID-19 with severe repercussions on social-economic life.

The decision refers to the legal entities whose financial situation is temporarily affected due to the state of emergency and the economic consequences generated by COVID-19.

During 2020, the financial system of the Republic of Moldova showed resilience, the economic and social conditions influenced by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic being characterized by uneven developments and materializations of risks in the segments of the economy of the Republic of Moldova.

The officials discussed mainly the progress made in the financial and banking sector of the Republic of Moldova, the maintaining of its resilience capacity to the severe challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the macro-financial aspects of our country's development in the context of European integration.

The Executive Board's decision aims at tempering the rapid growth rates of consumer prices, mitigating the secondary effects of supply shocks, stimulating financial intermediation in the national currency and saving against consumption, stabilizing the trade balance, as well as anchoring inflationary expectations.

 

În trimestrul I 2022, rata anuală a inflației a continuat, cu un ritm mai pronunțat decât s-a anticipat, traiectoria ascendentă începută în anul 2021.

The National Committee on Financial Stability met on April 26, 2021, during the ordinary meeting, to examine the current situation in the banking sector, the insurance sector and the non-bank lending sector.

The National Bank of Moldova (NBM) organizes on Monday, 29 November 2021, more events dedicated to the 28th anniversary of the introduction of the Moldovan leu.

The annual rate of core inflation will have an upward trend during the current year, subsequently decreasing continuously until the end of the forecast period

Following the decrease by about USD 144.15 million in March and April, the official reserve assets restored to the level of USD 3,118.53 million, according to data of 24 April 2020.

Annual inflation rate will decrease insignificantly in the current quarter, but, starting with the next quarter, will increase until the end of the forecast horizon, returning to the proximity of the inflation target.
