Other issues discussed within the Board’s meeting concerned the liquidity in the banking system for which they will proceed with an adequate management and the cash reserve ratio. As for the latter, both lei- and foreign currency-denominated liabilities of credit institutions will be maintained at the existing levels established at the beginning of the past month.
