I am pleased to be here with you today to discuss and hear about a very important topic for our country's economy, and I would like to thank the American Chamber of Commerce for the invitation and to express my high considerations for businesses and their role in the country's economic development.

I believe that the topic of this conference is very good because it comes at a time when the banking sector has made great progress in improving the conditions for sustainable financing of the economy, namely businesses.
