PRESS RELEASE                                                      Release Date: February 24, 2020             


Monetary Aggregates   For the month of January 2020, the monthly growth rates of the monetary aggregates M1B and M2 (measured on a daily average basis) were 1.60% and 0.90%, respectively, both higher than those of the previous month. The annual growth rates of M1B and M2 increased to 7.61% and 4.60%, respectively, mainly because of capital inflows.

Direct and Indirect Finance   At the end of January, the monthly growth rate of total outstanding loans and investments (measured on a cost basis) of monetary financial institutions was 0.95%, higher than that at the end of the previous month. Meanwhile, the annual growth rate decreased from 4.96% at the end of the previous month to 4.88% because of a year-on-year decrease in bank claims on the government. If (1) loans and investments extended by life insurance companies, (2) non-accrual loans reclassified and bad loans written off by monetary financial institutions, and (3) funds raised directly from capital markets were all taken into account, the total outstanding amount of funds raised by the non-financial sector would show an annual growth rate of 4.14%, higher than the 4.04% registered at the end of the previous month.
