Dominique Laboureix, Chair of the Single Resolution Board, after the meetings at the Croatian National Bank said: "It was a great pleasure to meet with the Croatian National Bank, one of our key partners in the Single Resolution Mechanism. By working together, we ensure that resolution decisions are made efficiently and effectively across participating Member States of the Banking Union, while avoiding negative impacts on financial stability and the need for public financial support. We appreciate the trust and cooperation we've established and look forward to continuing our joint efforts towards a more resilient banking system."
On the occasion of the meeting, Governor Vujčić stated: "We are truly pleased for having the opportunity to meet with the representatives of the Single Resolution Board and continue our successful cooperation. Within the frame of the regular annual dialogue, the visit by the representatives of the Single Resolution Board and also the first visit by SRB Chair, Mr. Laboureix, has further enhanced the relationship between our institutions, aiming to maintain the resilience of the financial system. Furthermore, we appreciate the trust that has been established between the Croatian National Bank and the Single Resolution Board, following the exceptional cooperation during the process of the resolution of Sberbank d.d., which provided an excellent foundation for further preservation of the stability of the Croatian banking system."
