Government funds rise to €1.9bn in July, central bank says 0

Cyprus’s government had at the end of July almost €1.9bn deposited at the Central Bank of Cyprus up from €976.4m the month before, the bank said.

Also, total other claims on euro area credit institutions denominated in euro, which include emergency liquidity extended to banks, dropped to slightly above €2bn in July, from €2.4bn in June, the central bank said in a statement on its website on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Bank of Cyprus said that its outstanding emergency liquidity from the European Central Bank had dropped to €1.5bn.

The government, which in July issued a €1bn 7-year bond, decided a week ago to deposit €430m at Cypriot banks, as it pays an annual 0.4 per cent interest on the amounts deposited at the Central bank.
