MAS and CBIRC reaffirmed their commitment to deepen supervisory cooperation by signing the CBIRC-MAS Supervisory Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance supervisory cooperation. The MoU will also facilitate the exchange of information between MAS and CBIRC in the areas of banking and insurance supervision and crisis management. The MoU was signed by the MAS Deputy Managing Director Mr. Ong Chong Tee and the CBIRC Vice Chairman Mr Liang Tao.
The agencies also held the MAS-CBIRC Supervisory Roundtable. Topics discussed during the Roundtable included supervisory developments in the banking and insurance sectors of China and Singapore, such as digital banking, risk-based capital frameworks, and the insurance intermediary market. Mr. Ong of MAS said: “This MoU affirms the close partnership between both regulators. It will facilitate regulatory cooperation, given the growing presence of banks and insurers in both our jurisdictions. Discussions at the Roundtable have deepened our understanding of each other’s regulatory regime and supervisory practices. Both sides agreed to deepen our supervisory cooperation and to further strengthen our working relationship.”
