    FSC Taiwan published provisions on disclosure of information related to capital adequacy and risk management of domestic banks. Also published were the disclosure forms (Annex I) and questions and answers (Q&As) on the disclosure of bank capital adequacy and risk management information (Annex II). The Decree on these provisions becomes effective from June 30, 2020.
