Loans to eurozone businesses still weak
(04-29 16:34)

Lending to businesses in the debt-mired eurozone contracted again in March, data published by the European Central Bank showed on Tuesday.
Private sector loans dropped by 2.2 percent last month on a year-on-year comparison, the ECB said, after already contracting in January and February.
The Frankfurt-based ECB also published its latest money supply figures, a preliminary indicator of inflation, showing a 1.1-percent increase in March after rising 1.3 percent a month earlier. --AFP
