Foreign Exchange Reserves in Excess of EUR 73.3 bn
NBP data: In October, the amount of NBP foreign exchange reserves as expressed in euro fell slightly while rising in dollar terms.
According to the data released by the NBP on 7 November on the official reserve assets as at the end of October, the euro-term stock of foreign exchange reserves stood at above EUR 73.3 bn, slightly down on the end-of-September figure (of close to 74.1 bn). When expressed in dollar terms, the level of the reserves had risen from USD 100.3 bn in September to USD 102.7 bn in October. This means that changes in the stock of the reserves had resulted from the fluctuations in the exchange rates of the two currencies. In managing the foreign exchange reserves, the National Bank of Poland strives to maximize the return on the assets while giving priority to their safe investment and a requisite level of liquidity.
