The global financial crisis terminated lending growth rates in CESEE countries, and seven years after financial global crisis, bank credit still continues with depression rate.  Demand and supply for bank credit are contracted, as a results of various factors.  The paper tries to find the level of credit contraction and factors that may have affected it, as well as policy action which are being taken to improve bank performance. Economic activity on the other hand, despite the depressed credit growth rates seem to show a trend of regeneration. This phenomenon of increasing economic activity without the support of the loan seems is happening in this post-crisis period in CESEE countries, although we must say that it remains undesirable phenomenon.
