National Bank of Belarus Requires Employees of Other Banks to Work for Free

What does it mean?

The National Bank requires employees of other banks to work for free. From directors to ordinary employees, this is called "Effective Corporate Governance."

Although, these concerns work not in the bank itself but other organizations, InfoBank.by writes.

Thus, the National Bank sent a letter to banks on October 22 “On corporate governance in banks”.

We inform you that on October 13, 2021, the Board of the National Bank made a decision on the need to improve the organization of corporate governance in banks.
