Lending to businesses in the debt-mired euro zone contracted again in January, data published by the European Central Bank show.
Private sector loans dropped by 2 percent in January in a year-on-year comparison, the ECB said, after already contracting by 2.3 percent in December.
The Frankfurt-based ECB also published its latest money supply figures, a preliminary indicator of inflation, showing a 1.2-percent increase in January after a rise of 1 percent in December. –AFP
