The article discusses the outlook for implications of Bank Latvia's seven-day deposit rate cut of 0.50% among other lending banks in Latvia. It states that the domestic cuts will cause banks to make stronger capital ratios for their external credit availability, expansion of their balance sheets, and will delay issuance of new lending. However, it says that despite the cuts are expected to bring domestic lending into medium term, return to the credit growth in pre-crisis is unlikely to happen.
