Baku. Vahab Rzayev - APA-Economics. The ratio of net liquid assets of Azerbaijan-based banks to total deposits for the first half of 2009 stood at 57,8%, said the Central Bank.

This ratio rose by 2.8 percentage points from the beginning of this year but fell by 0.9 percentage points from the beginning of the second quarter.

The change in the ratio of net liquid assets to deposits is mainly due to changes in deposits. For example, since the beginning of the year, bank deposits fell by 16.5% but increased by 5.3 in the second quarter.
In general, 58% is a positive indicator for the banking system as it reflects the high solvency of banks.
