ATHENS, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Greek private sector bank deposits increased by 2.0 percent in December, rising for a third straight month, central bank data showed on Friday.
Business and household deposits rose to 126.35 billion euros ($157.37 billion) from 123.86 billion in November.
Greek banks have seen small deposit inflows over the space of more than two years after the country clinched a third bailout to stay in the euro zone in July 2015.
While they remain dependent on central bank borrowing to plug their funding gaps, banks have reduced their exposure. ($1 = 0.8029 euros) (Reporting By George Georgiopoulos, writing by Michele Kambas)
