Israel’s foreign exchange reserves at the end of April 2009 stood at $45,076 million, an increase of $921 million from their level at the end of March.
The change April derived from:
Ø an increase of $1,450 million due to Bank of Israel purchases on the market, as part of its planned increase in the foreign exchange reserves;
Ø an increase of $167 million due to a revaluation of the reserves.
These were partially offset by:
Ø net sales of $351 million of foreign currency by the private sector;
Ø transfers of $345 million abroad by the public sector.
