“Vahid Shaghaghi Shahri” in an interview with Iran is an economist He added: Central Bank has put economic stabilization policy on its agenda during the period of sanctions.

Referring to the country’s economic stability in the 1960s, which was known as coupon policies, he continued: It is natural that the concept of economic stabilization proposed by the Governor of the Central Bank is different from the economic stabilization of the 1960s, and his approach is to stabilize macroeconomic variables. .

This economic expert said: Central Bank is trying to stabilize monetary and currency variables in Iran’s economy so that investors can plan based on this stability and consumers can make purchasing decisions based on the stability that will prevail in the economy.

He added: In the continuation of the stabilization policy, the central bank followed measures such as organizing non-performing banks, preventing banks from overdrawing from the central bank, and controlling the growth of liquidity in the economy.

The dissatisfaction of banks is reduced.

He emphasized: It is true that the central bank is following contractionary policies, but efforts are being made to implement the credit management policy, and with the supervisions that are being carried out, credit management will be carried out and economic productive sectors will benefit from banking facilities, but the basic condition is It is for the banks to stop being increasingly corporate and to sell their frozen and toxic assets.

This economic expert continued: An example is Tejarat Bank, which has auctioned a large land, the value of which is 15,000,000 billion Tomans, while the value of Tejarat Bank in the capital market is 50,000 billion Tomans, and this shows that Our banks have valuable frozen assets that they have been holding and this has led to banks’ disharmony.

He added: If these frozen properties are sold, the dissatisfaction of the banks will gradually decrease and with the decrease of the dissatisfaction, the health index of the banks will increase and the central bank will have a strong management over the banking network.

This banking expert emphasized: liquidity growth can be controlled through bank discipline.
