Financial markets

The financial crisis revealed a number of structural imbalances in the area of the banking and corporate sectors. The beginning of the stabilisation and privatisation of banks was the first step in restructuring these sectors, but effective further implementation is vital to ensure financial stability. With a decline in the share of non-performing claims and corporate indebtedness, enterprises will get better access to funding. They will also be able to improve their financial structure by funding from long-term (equity and debt) sources of finance.
