Feb. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The Jordanian central bank’s foreign currency reserves declined 14.1 percent to $10.5 billion last year and are sufficient to cover imports for a little more than six months, the bank said on its website.

Total deposits at banks rose 8.3 percent in 2011 to 24.4 billion dinars ($34.4 billion), the report said. Credit facilities extended by Jordanian banks increased 9.7 percent to 15.9 billion dinars.
