Main Functions of the Central Bank of Kosovo are: • Drafting and implementation of monetary policy, • Regulation and supervision of the banking system, • Bank of the Government, • Management of foreign exhange and gold reserves. Central Bank acts as the Banker, Fiscal Agent, and Economic Adviser to Government. Developing an efficient and safe system for domestic payments is a primary function of the CBK. Creating of Electronic System for Interbank Clearing (SEKN) in 2001, first as a system of interbank payments was a major step forward in terms of facilitating the operations of domestic payments through the banking system. SEKN remains the only system of interbank payments since then, but has been raised significantly functionally in recent years, especially in 2008, aiming at modernizing and enriching ways of conducting transactions. Specifically, in 2008, was passed in web technology platform and developed the Direct Debit scheme. Facilitating the exchange of information between lending institutions is a crucial and target commitment of the CBK in order to develop interbank infrastructure for credit market advancement and promotion of financial stability.
