According to the public relations of the Monetary and Banking Research Institute, Dr. Shapoor Mohammadi, head of the Monetary and Banking Research Institute, said at the signing ceremony: "This action will be a happy step to expand research cooperation between the two centers and the Monetary and Banking Research Institute is ready to collaborate with the Research Center of the Parliament through outsourcing research or in the form of joint work."
He said that the money market in our country is not a basic market and the banking system is very important in this area, added: "So we hope to be able to benefit from the help of the parliament in various areas of the money market and with the help of this memorandum of cooperation both the Central Bank and the money market will take action sooner."
Dr. Mohammad Ghasemi, head of the Parliamentary Research Center, said: "The Monetary and Banking Research Institute is one of the well-known and specialized research centers in the country. We hope that the MBRI will be able to upgrade the brand it has created, in near future and this will be a memorandum of understanding to use the high capacities of this research institute."
He reminded: "In the last two terms of the Islamic Parliament, central banking issues, banking operations and current issues of the banking system are on the agenda of the Assembly, but the reforms that have been made are not as expected and we are facing an accumulated volume of issues in these areas."
Dr. Ghasemi said that if we solve the current problems of the banking system in any way but do not address institutional issues such as the modernization of the country's monetary and banking system, the problems and crises will be repeated. Given the importance of the banking system, this Memorandum of Understanding is one of the most important agreements of the Research Center, and we must set specific priorities for cooperation on the agenda.
The head of the Parliamentary Research Center pointed out that the number one priority of the Economic Commission is monetary and banking issues and tax system issues that are related to each other. However, we do not insist on amending monetary and banking laws and interest-free banking operations through the plan, but experience has shown that the Parliament cannot wait for governments.
