The reserves increased by 0.4% from the revised value of MOP208.8 billion (USD26.12 billion) for the previous month. Macao SAR’s foreign exchange reserves at end-June 2021 represented 11 times the currency in circulation or 85.3% of pataca M2 at end-May 2021.

The trade-weighted effective exchange rate index for the pataca rose 0.26 points month-to-month but fell 5.82 points year-on-year to 102.4 in June 2021, implying that overall speaking, the exchange rate of the pataca grew against the currencies of Macao’s major trading partners on a monthly basis but dropped on an annual basis.
