Monetary Statistics for September 2005

According to statistics published today (Monday) by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, total deposits with authorized institutions increased by 0.7% in September 2005, as a 1.6% rise in Hong Kong dollar deposits more than offset a decline of 0.4% in foreign currency deposits. Within foreign currency deposits, renminbi deposits amounted to RMB22.6 billion yuan in September, compared with RMB22.4 billion yuan in August.

Total loans and advances expanded by 0.6% in September, as a rise of 0.6% in loans for use in Hong Kong outweighed a slight decline of 0.04% in loans for use outside Hong Kong. Analysed by currency, foreign currency loans decreased, while Hong Kong dollar lending increased. As Hong Kong dollar deposits rose more than Hong Kong dollar loans, the loan-to-deposit ratio fell to 84.8% in September.

On a seasonally adjusted basis, Hong Kong dollar M1 decreased by 1.5% in September and by 5.6% from a year earlier. Unadjusted Hong Kong dollar M2 and M3 both grew by 1.5% during the month, and by 10.1% on a year-on-year comparison.
