NBS posts loss of over half a billion euros for 2010

Slovakia's central bank (NBS) posted a loss of more than €515 million last year, according to audited financial statements that parliament examined on Tuesday, May 24 the TASR newswire wrote. The loss is higher than in 2009, when NBS reported that it was just over €70 million in the red. NBS engages in many of the same financial and market transactions as it did pre-2009 and the adoption of the euro, but now does so as part of the Euro-system in coordination with the European Central Bank and other central banks.
