Reform of the regulatory framework and banking supervision in Angola A delegation of the National Bank of Angola (BNA) headed by Governor Valter Duarte da Silva was in Paris for meetings with the Bank of France and other French banking system institutions, to strength institutional relations and raise awareness in the French financial sector for the reform of the regulatory and banking supervision framework in Angola. Through the BNA, Angola has developed a very strong effort to quickly adapt its financial system to international prudential standards and good practices with the objective of restoring international credibility and confidence in the Angolan financial system, aiming its recognition abroad by their counterparts. BNA has been imposing on Angolan commercial banks the adoption of best practices in financial regulation and supervision, and as a result of this effort seven of the largest banks operating in Angola have already adopted International Accounting and Reporting Financial Statements Standards. "Our expectation is that the European Central Bank and the United States Federal Reserve will recognize the National Bank of Angola as an entity of equivalence in banking regulation and supervision in the first half of this year," said Valter Duarte Silva. The Angolan visit to the French capital is part of a program of contacts and visits of the BNA to the world's financial centers. The BNA has developed several contacts with international institutions and counterparts such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve of the United States, the Bank of England, the Bank of France, the Bank of Italy, the Bank of Portugal And the Reserve Bank of South Africa in order to adapt to good banking supervision practices in Europe and the United States, and to show what has already been done in Angola, as well as to train its technicians and senior management. "Our work has been developed in partnership with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank and in close collaboration with the central banks of Portugal, South Africa, Italy, the United Kingdom, France and the United States of America, with which we have already established protocols for training human resources and for technical assistance," said the governor of the BNA. The Angolan delegation has held meetings at the highest level with the Governor of the Bank of France, Mr. François Villeroy Galhau, and with representatives of French banks such as BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole and Natixis, as well as institutions such as the French Banking Federation, MEDEF International, The International Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the Paris Club.

Réforme du cadre réglementaire et de surveillance bancaire en Angola Une délégation de la Banque nationale d'Angola (BNA), dirigée par le gouverneur Valter Duarte da Silva, était à Paris pour des rencontres avec la Banque de France et d'autres institutions du système bancaire français, afin de renforcer les relations institutionnelles et de conscientiser le secteur financier français à la réforme du cadre réglementaire et de surveillance bancaire en Angola. À travers la BNA, l'Angola a déployé un effort important visant à adapter rapidement son système financier aux normes prudentielles et pratiques d'excellence internationales. Son objectif est de restaurer la crédibilité et la confiance internationales envers le système financier angolais en dirigeant sa reconnaissance à l'étranger par le biais de ses contreparties. La BNA impose aux banques commerciales angolaises l'adoption de pratiques d'excellence relatives à la régulation et à la surveillance, en conséquence de quoi sept des principales banques en opération en Angola ont déjà adopté des normes relatives à la comptabilité internationale et aux rapports sur les états financiers. « Nous espérons que la Banque centrale européenne et la Réserve fédérale des États-Unis reconnaîtront la Banque nationale d'Angola comme une entité d'équivalence dans la régulation et la supervision bancaire au cours du premier semestre de cette année », a déclaré Valter Duarte Silva. La visite angolaise de la capitale française fait partie d'un programme de contacts et de visites de la BNA dans les centres financiers mondiaux. La BNA a développé plusieurs contacts avec des institutions internationales et des contreparties telles que la Banque mondiale et le Fonds monétaire international, la Réserve fédérale des États-Unis, la Banque d'Angleterre, la Banque de France, la Banque d'Italie, la Banque du Portugal et la Banque centrale sud-africaine, afin de s'adapter aux pratiques d'excellence de l'Europe et des États-Unis en matière de surveillance et de montrer ce qui a déjà été réalisé en Angola, ainsi que de former ses techniciens et cadres supérieurs. « Notre travail a été mis au point en partenariat avec le Fonds monétaire international et la Banque mondiale et en étroite collaboration avec les banques centrales du Portugal, d'Afrique du Sud, d'Italie, d'Angleterre, de France et des États-Unis d'Amérique, avec qui nous avons déjà établi des protocoles pour la formation des ressources humaines et pour l'assistance technique », a expliqué le gouverneur de la BNA. La délégation angolaise a tenu des réunions au plus haut niveau avec M. François Villeroy Galhau, gouverneur de la Banque de France, et avec des représentants de banques françaises telles que BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole et Natixis, ainsi que des institutions telles que la Fédération des banques françaises, MEDEF International, l'International Financial Action Task Force (FATF) et le Club de Paris.
