Annual Report CNSM 2021

The international macro-financial environment was marked by the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic during 2021 as well, with the authorities further taking measures to mitigate the identified vulnerabilities and address new challenges. On the domestic front, the prudent stance of macroprudential policy materialised in an increase of countercyclical capital requirements, given the high levels of liquidity and profitability indicators of the banking sector, which allow capital conservation, without creating lending constraints and hindering eligible borrowers’ access to credit.
