Due to the cooperation of the National Bank of Moldova (NBM) with the Banca Comercială Română and Banca Transilvania, the Moldovan Leu (MDL) will be accepted for foreign exchange operations and banking transactions in Romania.

On 11 September 2018, the Governor of the National Bank of Moldova (NBM), Mr. Sergiu Cioclea, and the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Cristina Harea, held a meeting with the new Lithuanian Ambassador to Moldova, Kęstutis Kudzmanas.

The National Bank specifies that the decision of the NBM Executive Board, by which the company’s activity was suspended, maintains its legal effects.

The interview was conducted based on the questions addressed by media institutions and news sites of the Republic of Moldova, one question per institution, following the NBM’s call for questions.

The National Bank of Moldova (NBM) comes with clarifications in connection with a series of articles that appeared in the local press regarding the decision of the European Central Bank (ECB) to discontinue production and issuance of the €500 banknote by the end of this year.

On the days 28, 29 and 30 August 2018, declared public holidays, the National Bank of Moldova will ensure the economic activity continuity of the individuals and legal entities, undertaking the necessary measures to carry out transactions in normal regime through the Automatic Interbank Payment System.

The decision was taken after it was found that the bank is able to ensure transparency of its shareholders, following the acquisition of 72.19 percent of the bank’s share capital by the VB Investment Holding B.V., a company owned by Banca Transilvania from Romania, in partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). 

Pursuant to art. 63 par. (7) of the Law on Banking Activity no. 202 of 06.10.2017, the NBM, as the competent authority, identifies banks that are systemically important institutions (hereinafter O-SIIs).

The decision was taken following an on-site target inspection of the provider’s activity in the field of electronic money issuance, taking into account the severity and the repeated nature of violations committed by the provider.

The Executive Board of the National Bank of Moldova (NBM) set rates to be applied on the new macro-prudential instruments, adopted by the NBM pursuant to the Law no. 202 of 06.10.2017 on banks’ activity and the Regulation on bank capital buffers approved by the Decision of the Executive Board of the NBM no.110 of 24.05.2018.

The fine amounting to 1% of the shareholders' holding in the bank's share capital will be paid to the state budget. The bank operates in normal regime and provides all services, including those related to deposits, lending and settlements operations.
