– On the sidelines of the Central Bank of Iran’s (CBI) AGM the other day, the bank’s deputy governor announced the setting of a new 19-section policy package for the money and forex markets. The decision to offer such a package seems to stem from concerns raised over lack of definitive monetary policies by the CBI in managing fluctuations and volatility in the forex market, which then pointed fingers to the CBI’s non-independence over the recently held the 7th conference on Monetary Policies and Challenges Ahead Iran Banking Sector and Production. Chairing the meeting, President Rouhani also spoke about the economic achievements of his administration and referring to their success in curbing the inflation rate, demanded the CBI continue its measures to maintain stability in Iran’s economy. He then stressed on implementing reforms required in banks’ assets structure to approach international standards and strict supervision to prevent the formation of any non-regulated credit/financial institutions.
