Statement from the NBS Bank Board's 9th meeting of 2017

The Bank Board of Národná banka Slovenska today (25April) held its 9th meeting of 2017, chaired by Jozef Makúch, the NBS Governor.

The Bank Board approved the NBS Annual Report for 2016.

The Bank Board took note of NBS’s April 2017 Monthly Bulletin.

The Bank Board approved the April 2017 Quarterly Commentary on Macroprudential Policy. It also approved a Decision of 25 April 2017 confirming that the countercyclical capital buffer rate will be increased to 0.5% with effect from 1 August 2017.

Based on a proposal of the Slovak Association (SBA), the Bank Board decided that no contribution would be payable in 2017 to the operation of the SBA’s Permanent Court of Arbitration, given that the Court had sufficient funds from previous periods. The decision was taken in accordance with Article 91(2) of Act No 492/2009 Coll. on payment services (and amending certain laws).
