In addition, this Report provides statistics and information on the entities licensed by the Bank of Albania, and analyses issues related to the performance of the banking system.
Inflationary pressures fuelled by international developments dictated the performance of banking activity throughout 2022. The raise in the key interest rates by central authorities, in response to the surge in prices, led to the increase in interest rates for banking and financial products. Despite the increase in the credit price, the banks’ portfolio continued to grow over the previous year by 6.55%. Meanwhile its quality has been improving throughout the year, reaching at 5% as at end of December 2022.
The full Annual Supervision Report 2022 will be published in the coming days on the Bank of Albania's website http://www.bankofalbania.org/.
The Supervisory Council was also informed on other daily functional and operational activities of the Bank of Albania.
