Ensuring the soundness of the banking sector;

Developing money and capital markets;

Regulating and developing the payment, clearing and settlement systems as well as electronic financial operations.

by imposing on banks reserve requirements on their deposits in LBP.

The Central Bank can also regulate banks’ credit in terms of volume and type:

by imposing credit ceilings to limit credit risk;
