 Meanwhile he said the CBSI is also encouraged to note the renewed domestic confidence in the Government’s security papers and stands ready to absorb any government bonds that bondholders would like to offload for liquidity or some other reasons.

“I wish to reiterate that the Central Bank will work closely with the Government to recover the economy. As an agent of the Government, we are here to provide economic and financial advice to Government,” he told journalists.

On the policy front, Forau said the Central Bank will continue to consolidate economic recovery efforts, strengthen supervisory oversight, financial inclusion initiatives, and reduce business red tapes.
