Chairman of the Russian Association of Banks Georgy Luntovsky highlighted two aspects in the foreground: the search for resources to invest in the economy and the disclosure of information by banks and issuers.

“You have to find the right balance between the occlusion of information so as not to push anyone to new restrictive measures. On the other hand, it is necessary to provide the market with enough information to be able to assess the financial situation of its participants. This will help the stock market grow,” Luntovsky noted.

Later, at the press conference, the head of the State Duma’s Financial Market Committee and Chairman of the Board of the Association of Russian Banks Anatoly Aksakov said that a draft law on an experiment in launching Islamic banking in some Russian regions, including Tatarstan, had been presented to the State Duma.
