Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Latvia’s central bank sold 17 million lati ($32 million) for euros last week, the Riga-based bank said today on its website.
Latvia is a member of the pre-euro exchange-rate mechanism and pegs the lats to the European Union’s common currency. Latvia keeps the exchange rate within a 1 percent band around a target.
Latvia’s treasury exchanges funds from the country’s 7.5 billion-euro ($10 billion) international loan directly with the central bank for lati.
