PDIC signs cooperation agreement with Russian counterpart

June 5, 2018

STRONGER COLLABORATION. The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) and the State Corporation Deposit Insurance Agency Russian Federation (DIA) signed an agreement on cross border cooperation on May 29, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by PDIC President Roberto B. Tan and DIA Russia General Director Yury O. Isaev at the sidelines of the 55th Executive Council Meeting and International Conference of the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI). Under the agreement, PDIC and DIA Russia shall engage in the exchange of knowledge, experience and views on the implementation of internal standards towards a more effective deposit insurance system for both agencies. The MOU shall be effective for five years. This collaboration is in line with the IADI Core Principle on Cross Border Cooperation which promotes the formal sharing and coordination arrangements among deposit insurers in relevant jurisdictions. PDIC had earlier forged collaboration with its counterparts from Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the USA.
