AMMAN —AlGhad— According to the data published by the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ), domestic liquidity has decreased by 1.8 per cent over the first five months of 2017, compared to the closing figures last year, by nearly JOD600 million.

In May, domestic liquidity stood at JOD32.3 billion, compared to JOD32.9 billion in December, 2016.

The decline in liquidity is caused by the recession in deposits against stability in circulating currency.

Domestic bank deposits have declined 2.8 per cent, in May of the current year, to JOD28 billion, compared to JOD28.7 billion by the end of 2016.

Money in circulation, on the other hand, has held steady at JOD4.2 billion, compared to the end of 2016.
