Iran to tighten banking ties with Russia!
– In his return from Russian Federation, Iran Central Bank chair, Vali Allah Seif, herald for the two nations to ease the banking relations. On the first step, it seems that “Shaparak” and “Mir” payment systems are to connect in order to facilitate the purchases for the both countries tourism sector. After the technical processes are done, the utilization of credit or debit cards on P.O.S and ATM would be easily accessible either in Iran or Russia. The nest turn would be for two nations to use their very own national currencies in bilateral trades and commerce.
– Failing to deliver the required financials on time, it seems that “Saderat Bank” is on the verge of being dismissed from the main board of Tehran Stock Exchange and to be kicked over to the base market of Iran Fara Bourse as sign of retribution. Deputy publishers and members of Tehran Stock Exchange cited in an interview that Saderat Bank failed to meet the deadline on being transparent and declined to disclose the audited budget estimations for new fiscal year asked by the SEO. It is to be decided on Apr-May 2017 whether that the giant bank will kept on TSE or not.
