Souvorov presented a report “The development priorities of the EAEU countries’ financial markets and banking sectors” at the plenary session of the conference. He mentioned that modern tendencies of the EAEU development should be considered in the context of global challenges when volatility in the foreign exchange and financial markets becomes the key factor of the new economic reality. This should become an incentive for efforts consolidation of the EAEU countries on such directions as enhancing financial stability and raising capitalization of their financial markets, development of financial instruments in national currencies, decreasing transaction costs, creating conditions for common financial market of the EAEU etc.

A special session “The role of financial infrastructure of the EAEU in the development of integrated currency market and operations in national currencies” was held by Moscow Exchange and the Interstate Bank. President of the Interstate Bank I. Souvorov moderated the session and presented a report “Development of operations in national currencies of the EAEU”. In his speech he disclosed the statistics of settlements by foreign trade contracts that witnessed the predominance of the US dollar in such settlements. It causes additional risks, a decrease in liquidity of the national currencies and limitation of financial instruments in national currencies etc.

To promote an increase of settlements in the EAEU national currencies one may and should activate inter-governmental agreements and government decisions, after due evaluation of all pros and contras, assumes Mr. Souvorov. It is necessary to take measures on fostering the economic, financial and currency potentials of the EAEU countries under condition of modernization of their economies, diversification of production and exports of goods.

In Mr. Souvorov’s opinion, enhancement of the national currencies’ attractiveness (first of all, of the Russian rouble) will be promoted, inter alia, by the integrated currency market, institute of market-makers, national currencies’ direct quotations and development of crossborder settlements’ systems in the EAEU.
