Within the framework of Phase II of the Program for Strengthening the Capacities of Central Banks in the Western Balkans with the Aim of Integration into the European System of Central Banks, the Central Bank of the Republic of Kosovo started implementing a bilateral measure with the Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency.
This bilateral measure will be focused on the assessment of actuarial supervision within the insurance supervision function at the CBK, and will include two expert missions of the Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency to the CBK, as well as a CBK professional staff study visit in this agency.
This bilateral measure will last until September of this year, and will include the sharing of information on the state and contemporary developments in the Croatian insurance market and the transfer of experiences of the Croatian insurance authority.
Like the other components of this phase of the program, this bilateral measure is administered and coordinated by the Central Bank of Germany (Deutsche Bundesbank).
