Turkey lifts TRY transaction limits on foreign lenders
Banking watchdog exempts foreign banks, except int'l development banks, from limits on access to lira-legged transactions

By Aysu Bicer

ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's banking watchdog on Thursday eased limits on Turkish lira transactions with foreign lenders.

In a written statement, the Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency (BDDK) said foreign banks' financing transactions with domestic lenders via Turkish lira accounts to be opened in domestic banks would be exempt from restrictions on access to Turkish liras imposed in early April.

The agency last week also announced that it had exempted international development banks from several restrictions on access to Turkish lira liquidity.

Amid steps to normalize the economy from precautions taken against the novel coronavirus pandemic, the watchdog allowed international development banks with lira accounts in domestic lenders to conduct swaps with the Development Investment Bank of Turkey and the Borsa Istanbul stock exchange to buy liras.

The move also paved the way for international development banks to conduct repo and reverse repo transactions at Borsa Istanbul, as well as Turkish lira depo transactions with domestic lenders.
