Abstract: The article discusses the role of foreign banks and foreign lending in the CEE countries from the financial stability perspective using the data on international banking business. The pattern of foreign banks’ involvement is analyzed and the risk of cross-border contagion explored, focusing on three aspects: maturity of cross-border exposures, concentration of foreign creditors and the existence of common creditor.
