CMB Council adopted the Financial Plan, the Governor’s Report and the Chief Economists` Quarterly Report

The sixth meeting of the new Council of the Central Bank of Montenegro (CBM) was held on 27 December 2010. It was chaired by the CBM Governor, Mr. Radoje Žugić, MSc.

The Financial Plan of the Central Bank of Montenegro for 2011 was adopted at the meeting. The Plan envisages 9.744 million € of total revenues, which is 0.4% less than the expected revenues in 2010. Expenditures are planned to the amount of 9.628 million € or 0.1% less than in the current year, whereas 0.146 million € are planned as current reserves which allocation is to be determined by the CBM Council.

The Council also adopted the Governor’s Report. The Report states that bank lending continues trending downward, yet deposits showed an uptrend in November. Total assets of banks are on a decrease, but if observed by individual banks, eight record an increase and three banks a decline in their assets. The Report presents detailed activities of every individual organisation unit, as well as the balance sheet and the profit and loss statement of the CBM in the first eleven months of 2010. In addition, the Report contains the most important conclusions from the meetings of the CBM and the IMF mission that visited Montenegro in November this year.

Pursuant to its powers granted under the Central Bank of Montenegro Law and the Banking Law, the CBM adopted the Decision on Detailed Requirements for Members of the Board of Directors in Banks. A candidate for the Board of Directors must have a recognized personal reputation, professional qualifications, capabilities and experience in managing a bank. The Decision prescribes detailed manners of establishing the fulfilment of the aforementioned requirements.

In addition, the Council adopted the Chief Economist’s 2010 3Q Report. The Report states that the Montenegrin economy exited the recession at the end of the third quarter of the current year. Growth was recorded in industry, forestry, tourism, certain transportation segments and trade, whereas construction is still in the crisis. It is estimated that period-on-period real GDP growth in the first nine months of the current year was some 2%. Inflation remains low, the balance of payments has partially improved (as the result of crisis adjustments, rather than improved competitiveness), while the capital market is still in the crisis. The banking system is stable and highly liquid, and what is also important is that the system was recapitalized to the amount of 73 million € in 2010. 

The Council also adopted the Decision on Labour Rights of the Banking Ombudsman, thus completing the regulatory framework necessary to ensure uninterrupted operations of the banking ombudsman.

Donations to Child Home “Mladost” and PI “Komanski most

The Central Bank of Montenegro donated 5,000 € to “Mladost” Bijela Institution for Children without Parental Care and Special Institution for Children and Youth “Komanski most”. This is the way the Central Bank of Montenegro expresses its solidarity and offers help to those who need it most.

Podgorica, 27.12.2010

Information on application of Basel III presented and two decisions adopted

The Financial Stability Council held its second regular meeting. It was chaired by the CBM Governor, Mr. Radoje Žugić, and attended by the Council members Mr. Vladimir Kavarić, the President of the Insurance Supervision Agency, and Mr. Zoran Đikanović, the President of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The minutes of the first constitutive meeting of the Financial Stability Council were adopted at the meeting. The Council also adopted the Decision on the collection and exchange of data and information of importance for the financial system stability and the Decision on giving consent to the list of persons responsible for the delivery of data and information to the Financial Stability Council.

The Council was introduced to the information regarding the Basel III timeline for the implementation of novelties which this international standard will bring to the banking system operations.

Basel III is a part of ongoing efforts of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) to further enhance the regulatory framework with a view to improving both quantity and quality of capital in order to discourage excessive borrowing and risk-taking of the banking sector. An integral part of this capital reform represents the introduction of the new minimum liquidity standards for internationally active banks. The new rules concerning capital and liquidity, after their full implementation, should enable banks to be able to absorb any future disturbances in the global financial market without being extended any extraordinary state support, as well as to improve the risk management process. This will provide the vital contribution to a long-term financial stability.

In the end, it was concluded that some risks to the financial stability still remain, yet the overall risk level was assessed as being moderate.

Podgorica, 23.12.2010

The obligation of submitting statistics of private external debt and FDI

The statistics of private external debt and foreign direct investments are parts of the statistics compiled by the Central Bank of Montenegro (CBM). The statistics are maintained by combining data received from direct reporting by companies and banks. The obligation of submitting these data is regulated in the Law on Foreign Current and Capital Operations, the Central Bank of Montenegro Law and the secondary legislation passed by the CBM. Since a number of companies failed to meet their legal obligation after numerous appeals by the CBM, the CBM is compelled to initiate offence proceedings against these companies before competent courts. The list of companies which have been definitely established to have failed in meeting this legal obligation is published at the Central Bank of Montenegro’s website at the following address:

However, the list does not exclude the possibility that there are other companies that have not met this reporting obligation, but the CBM does not have any conclusive information at the moment. Offence proceedings shall be initiated against all companies who fail to meet the legal obligation until 30 December of the current year.

Podgorica, 06.12.2010

Central Bank of Montenegro donated EUR 30.000 as a support to endangered

Joining the solidarity action regarding unprecedented floods in many Montenegrin municipalities, the Central Bank of Montenegro donated EUR 30.000. Thereby, we have joined numerous entities in expressing solidarity to those people who need help the most.

Cooperation Formats between the Central Bank of Montenegro and the IDF

At the meeting held between the representatives of the Central Bank of Montenegro and the Investment-Development Fund of Montenegro, the Fund’s representatives, Mr. Dragan Lajović, President of the Managing Board and Mr. Predrag Poček, Executive Director, introduced the Governor of the Central Bank of Montenegro, Mr. Radoje Žugić, and his closest associates on the activities and the operations of the Fund. It was noted that, in the present work, the Fund was highly effective in development projects crediting in Montenegro, thus becoming an important entity at the financial market of Montenegro. In the coming short period, the Fund shall improve and expand its business activities by developing new products, whereby it was emphasised that the Central bank, with respect to its systemic role in maintaining safeness and soundness of the banking system, should be fully aware of all business indicators of the Fund, including the need of assessing the Fund’s total risk profile by the Central bank, taking into consideration the importance and influence of the Fund to the banking sector. To that wit, the representatives of the Fund and the Central Bank would make special Memorandum of Understanding which would define their rights and obligations stemming from the systemic position of these institutions, pursuant to legislation regulating the institutional position, organisation and operations of these institutions.
