Romania's National Central Bank will most likely license a bank set up by Romanian capital only, BNR official Nicolae Cinteza declared, quoted by Romanian news agency NewsIn. He explained that BNR's Administration Council is currently tackling this issue.
Concerning the selling procedures of the Royal Bank of Scotland RBS, Cinteza declared that talks are advanced but the Central National Bank seeks that every bank has powerful shareholders on board rather than many, scattered shareholders.
There are currently 43 banks on the Romanian market, including foreign banks and Creditcoop. Among those, six have a majority of Romanian capital - CEC Bank, Transilvania, EximBank, Banca Comerciala Carpatica, Libra Bank and Credicoop.
