In its report on the monetary and banking developments in October 2022, the bank said that gross credit grew by 0.2 per cent, rising from Dh1.873 trillion at the end of September 2022 to Dh1.878 trillion at the end of October 2022. Gross Credit rose due to increase in Domestic Credit by 0.1 per cent and Foreign Credit by 1.5 per cent.


The central bank attributed the increase in domestic credit to the increase in credit granted to the public Sector (Government-related entities) and the private sector by 0.7 per cent and 0.1 per cent, respectively.

Total bank deposits increased by 0.8 per cent, climbing from Dh2.187 trillion at the end of September 2022 to Dh2.205 trillion at the end of October 2022. The growth in total bank deposits was due to the rise in resident deposits by 0.4 per cent and non-resident deposits by 4.2 per cent. — Wam
