MILAN, May 8 (Reuters) - The Bank of Italy’s liabilities towards other euro zone central banks rose in April, reversing the previous month’s drop, data showed on Wednesday.
Italy’s so-called Target 2 debt stood at 481.47 billion euros ($539.44 billion) last month compared with 474.81 billion euros in March, the Bank of Italy said.
A country’s Target2 position is monitored as a sign of financial stress and imbalances within the euro zone. A country’s Target2 debt could rise, for example, due to capital outflows.
Italy’s Target2 debt hit an all-time record last August at 492.53 billion euros.
