Bank Regulation And Supervision In Central And Eastern Europe:The Case Of The Republic Of Moldova


  • Mariana CUCU

    (Universität Regensburg, Germania)


During last decades the interest to financial stability and, as a result, to regulatory and supervisory issues has markedly increased in academic and policy circles. Representative research has been done since that time referring to both financial and banking regulation, however only a few studies concern Central and Eastern European (CEE) and even less - Moldovan experience in this field. This paper is an attempt to bring together, analyze and compare information on prudential regulatory and supervisory provisions in CEE countries, with a major emphasis put on the example of Moldovan banking system. Therefore, analysis of best international regulatory practices conclude with the examination of main Moldovan banking governance “weaknesses” and suggestions of potential reforms applicable for improvement of its existing state of the facts.
