The establishment of QABs is in line with the Asean Banking Integration Framework (ABIF), which 'provides that QABs must meet global banking standards as well as the guidelines for their operations set under bilateral agreements between home and host countries,' the BSP said in a statement.
ABIF, approved by Asean member-countries in 2014, allows QABs to have greater access to neighboring markets as well as more flexibility in their operations there.
To recall, the central banks of the Philippines and Malaysia have signed an agreement to allow the entry of QABs.
Finalizing this agreement between the BSP and BNM is an important step towards achieving the goal of the ABIF to enhance intra-regional trade and inclusive growth through QABs operating in host Asean jurisdictions,' Tetangco had said.
ABIF is designed to realize the vision of One ASEAN Community, using these QABs
as the vehicle for maximizing the vast trade and investment potential of ASEAN.
