Banking Sector

In 2014, the government approved Concept for Development of Financial Sector through to 2030 adopted by the National Bank and adjusted to the tangled world economic situation.

Among the main priorities adopted by the Concept there are reduction of costs for the support of stability of the financial system in the event of any shocks, increase of its effectiveness during its integration in the Common Economic Space and entry to the World Trade Organization and improvement of its infrastructure.
