It was pointed out that the NBS has enough foreign currency and foreign cash and that we continue to supply the banking sector with sufficient quantities.
Therefore, citizens should not worry, nor should there be panic about withdrawing deposits from banks where the funds are the safest and which are well capitalized and very liquid, or about buying foreign currency in exchange offices. The NBS provides sufficient funds and responds to all the requests of the banks, which proves that we are ready to react without delay and adequately, “the central bank said.
