The world Bank (WB) calls for a return to the issue of creating a structure for the settlement of non-performing assets of public banks after improving the system of corporate governance in these institutions. This was told by financial sector specialist, world Bank Yevgeny Grebenyuk, writes UNIAN.
“The decision to create a “Parking platform” for troubled assets should go after will solve the problem of non-performing corporate governance in these state-owned banks,” said Grebenyuk.
He stressed that the removal of problematic assets from state-owned banks does not solve the primary problem of their occurrence, and the need to reform corporate governance of state-owned banks that already provided by the current strategy.
“These two issues are directly connected. For example, if Oshchadbank and Ukreximbank as a result of this reform will actually have independent Supervisory boards and the new independent leadership, then perhaps they don’t want to give out bad loans,” – said the expert of the world Bank.
According to first Deputy Finance Minister Oksana Markarova, the Ministry of Finance supports the reform of corporate governance of state-owned banks have already implemented the new model in the PrivatBank and Ukrgasbank without approval by Parliament of the corresponding law.
“The problem is that non-performing loans have accumulated, including as a result of not depending on banks factors: the loss of territories and borrowers in these areas, military operations, and the loss of markets as a result of these actions,” she said.
