Foreign currency reserves up in 2012
Israel’s foreign exchange reserves stood at $75.866 billion at the end of December 2012.
The Bank of Israel also reported that the foreign exchange reserves rose $194 million in December 2012 from their level at the end of November. The reserves had fallen slightly in the previous two months.
The rise in December was due to a revaluation that increased the reserves by $338 million, and an increase of $67 million derived from private sector transactions. This was offset by government transfers abroad of $211 million.
Israel's foreign exchange reserves have moved away from the all-time record of $78.078 billion in August 2011.
