DNB Quarterly Bulletin

DNB’s Quarterly Bulletin, published for the last time in December 2010, provided information on financial-economic developments as well as going more deeply into DNB’s sphere of activity. This periodical targeted people working in the financial-economic sector, economists, reporters and students. In 2011, the Quarterly Bulletin was replaced by DNBulletin, a column that can be found on this site under News on the home page of this site.


DNB’s Quarterly Bulletins are available for download in .pdf format (see below).
