For the first time in the last twelve months, monthly growth in the volume of domestic bank loans in April was below the level of 2% for the third month in a row. Compared to the previous two months, growth increased somewhat as a consequence of higher growth in euro borrowing. Growth of corporate and NFI borrowing moderated at the fastest rate also in April. By the end of April, the share of housing loans had already climbed to 40.8% of all household loans, which was 1.7 p.p. more than at the end of 2007, although it did not even reach two thirds of the EMU average.
