Annual inflation

The annual rate of inflationAnnual inflation rate represents the increase of consumer prices during a month this year compared with the same month last year. It is calculated as a ratio (expressed in percentage terms) between the price index during a month this year and price index during the same month last year, calculated on the same basis, minus 100. Statistical surveys on consumer prices are carried out by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). NBM sets its inflation target at the level of 5.0 percent annually, calculated based on the consumer price index (inflation rate for the last twelve months – each month of this year compared with the same month of last year), with a possible deviation of ±1.5 percentage points.

Calendar of data dissemination


Licenced banks of the RM

Licensed banks operate in the market freely and independently from the NBM, the Government and other government authorities. The NBM licenses, supervises and regulates their activity.

This project complies with the NBM strategic objectives, which aims to develop the supervision function of the NBM. Thus, the information solution related to the licensing, authorisation and notification process is a component part of the NBM programme on implementing the Central Risk Monitoring System and is the second component of this Central.

The Governor of the NBR, Mugur Isărescu, seemed convinced that thanks to this project, the banking sector of the Republic of Moldova is on the right way. In this context, the Head of the NBR made an appeal to banks of Romania to enhance their presence in the Republic of Moldova.

The activity of the National Bank of Moldova on the foreign exchange market (foreign exchange interventions) is performed in strict compliance with the monetary and foreign exchange policy objectives.

The non-cash foreign exchange market of the Republic of Moldova is determined by the turnover of purchase/sale transactions of the foreign currency that have taken place on different segments of the market, except those performed by the National Bank of Moldova.

The National Bank of Moldova has improved the legal framework in the domain of monitoring transactions with the banks’ related persons. The main objective is to mitigate the risks to which the banks may be exposed as a result of engaging in such kind of transactions.

The beneficiaries of the Twinning Project will be licensed banks and citizens of the Republic of Moldova, who will enjoy a reliable and stable banking system.

During the first quarter of 2017, the banking sector assets continued to increase and the banks became more resistant, being capitalised with a high level of liquidity.
