Oct. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Latvia’s central bank bought 19.2 million lati ($36 million) for euros last week, the Riga-based bank said today on its website.
Latvia, like neighboring Lithuania, is a member of the pre- euro exchange-rate mechanism and pegs its currency to the euro. Latvia keeps the exchange rate within a 1 percent band around the target.
