International reserves

  Norwegian (bokmål)
Name International reserves
Definition International reserves are the central bank's reserves of foreign securities and other types of assets abroad, which are used in foreign exchange and monetary policy. In Norway, only Norges Bank has international reserves. In principle, reserves only exist as assets, i.e. foreign central banks' reserve acqusitions in Norway (e.g. in Norwegian securities) are not registered as "reserve debt" but as portfolio investments in Norway.
