Household deposits in Slovenia up to record
Slovenian household deposits at banks rose by over EUR 2 billion to a record EUR 23 billion in the epidemic year of 2020 from 2019, the country's central bank reported. It attributed the rise to the labor market measures taken during the epidemic, which enabled income growth.
But since many shops were closed, much of the income was not spent. Last year, the gross disposable income of households increased by 3.8% or EUR 1.1 billion over 2019.
The volume of consumer loans given out by banks and savings banks, meantime, dropped by EUR 218 million.
