The foreign-exchange reserves of the National Bank decreased for the first time this year.
In September they decreased by 3 tons.
Such information is provided in the National Bank’s data of the International reserve assets and liquidity of the Republic of Belarus of for 1 October 2012, onliner.by reports.
Whereas in August 2012 the number of pure troy ounces was 1,4 million, then in September the number fell to 1,3 million.
We would remind that the weight of a troy ounce in 31.1034768 grams. Therefore 100 000 pure troy ounces would amount to approximately 3.11 tons. Exactly by that amount the reserves of our country became “lighter”.
