Norges Bank's foreign exchange purchases in May 2014
Norges Bank will not purchase foreign exchange for the Government Pension Fund Global in May 2014.
Norges Bank makes the transfers to the GPFG on behalf of the government. Transfers take place each month in foreign currency. The Fund's foreign exchange requirements are partly met by the state's direct financial interest in petroleum activities (SDFI) and partly by Norges Bank's purchases in the market.
