The implementation of phase II of the IPA regional project entitled “Programme for Strengthening the Central Bank Capacities in the Western Balkans with a view to the Integration to the European System of Central Banks - Phase II” began on 21 September 2022.

The project will last 36 months and will be implemented through two components. The first component includes training events and high-level policy workshops in the areas covered by the project (accounting, AML/CFT, resolution of credit institutions, banking supervision (offsite/onsite), cash management, communication, EU integration, consumer protection, financial inclusion and financial education, management issues including strategic management, crisis management and operational resilience, green and sustainable finance, insurance supervision, internal audit, information technology, monetary policy implementation, payment systems, research in monetary and financial stability, and statistics). The second component is implemented on a bilateral basis for specific business areas in cooperation with selected partner central banks of the ESCB.
