The FLIFI establishment was caused by the need of structural transformations in the financial sector. Much has been already done in the Ukrainian financial market in relation to the legal environment standards setting, introduction of modern management and supervision regulations, but still, there are many things ahead. I believe that a consolidated experience of international banks will be useful on this way.
Convenient and effective platform for discussing the vital issues of the banking community. In the framework of regular meetings, bankers have a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with top officials of state and government bodies, as well as representatives of respected international organizations. All this makes it possible to reform the financial sector of Ukraine, make it closer, more transparent and professional for the economic development of our country.
FLIFI is granting an outstanding platform in its outreach and ability to establish a sustainable dialogue with the Ukrainian Government and its authorities. Enjoying the highest degree of trust and credibility, this forum delivers a secure space for an effective cooperation between FLIFI members, the Regulator and governing bodies to develop Ukraine as a Role Model in terms of the Financial Industry in an emerging market. This is an essential asset which could ultimately lead to the economic climate and attractiveness of Ukraine for international investors.
The FLIFI is a key platform for building effective relations with the Government for the implementation of the most significant initiatives. Combining experts from international banks, the FLIFI makes a huge contribution to the development of the economy and formation of positive changes in business environment.
Fruitful mutual cooperation and participation of ING Bank Ukraine in various events of FLIFI strengthens our relationships and enlarges the concept of ING Bank Ukraine to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and in business.
We consider activity of the association as dynamic and efficient. I believe, our cooperation will be fruitful and will bring the real value to the development of Ukrainian economy.
An effective dialogue between financial institutions and government is an essential condition for further development of Ukraine's economy and its financial sector in particular. Alfa-Bank Ukraine, being engaged in building up the largest private bank in Ukraine after the merger of two financial institutions - Alfa-Bank and Ukrsotsbank, is definitely interested in such dialogue and joined the Forum, wholly sharing the purpose and values of the community.
UKRSIBBANK BNP Paribas Group is happy to participate and contribute to the FLIFI initiatives which demonstrated to be very useful and material to support the development of the banking industry in Ukraine. In this major sector, foreign banks are definitively playing a key role. They are able to collaborate together in a totally compliant way and in the same time to do it in a very friendly atmosphere.
