FinMin: 93.6% of CHF-indexed loans converted

More than 50,000 CHF-indexed loans have been converted, or about 93.6%, Finance Minister Zdravko Maric said in Zagreb on Tuesday on the margins of a conference called "Loans and Economic Growth".

Slightly more than 5,000 loans, or 6.4%, are in the process of conversion, which is expected to be completed shortly, Maric said at the conference organised by the Croatian Banking Association (HUB) and the Croatian Employers' Association (HUP).

Last night the Finance Ministry received the first consolidated reports by the Croatian banks and these are being analysed, Maric said, adding that summary information would soon be released on the Ministry's website.
