The Central Bank of The Gambia, CBG, on Monday announced it has raised by two per cent (to 12 per cent) the amount of money that commercial banks can hold as reserve to curb rising inflation.

The CBG’s May 27 directive also noted it would address the amount of cash commercial banks must not loan out to customers.
