Foreign Exchange Deposits Slightly Outdoing Tolar Counterparts

Ljubljana, 30 October - SAVING/LOAN/POPULATION
Tolar deposits by general population in Slovene commercial banks amounted to SIT 327.7 billion at the end of August, while foreign currency deposits were slightly higher at SIT 364.4 billion according to the Bank of Slovenia. In the independence year of 1991, deposits totalled SIT 71 billion, of which foreign currency deposits amounted to SIT 51.4 billion and tolar deposits to SIT 21.8 billion. The figures, interesting also because of the world saving day, 31 October, indicate a steady increase of savings since independence and a changing balance between tolar and foreign currency deposits. On the other hand, the volume of loans taken in commercial banks has also been on a steady increase.
