- Staff Memo 
After the Covid-19 pandemic broke out, the authorities have introduced a number of measures aimed at the business sector.

A considerable share of banks’ loan customers in these sectors have received support from one or more of these schemes. This has likely had a dampening effect on banks’ credit loss risk.
