UAE to announce bank exposure rules in one to two months

The UAE Central Bank is expected to announce within one or two months rules restricting the amount of exposure which banks can have to the debt of government-related entities (GREs), a top commercial banker said on Tuesday.

Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, head of the national banking industry association and chief executive of Mashreq Bank, told reporters that each bank would then discuss the time frame for its compliance with the central bank on a case-by-case basis.

?It is already finalised by the central bank. Now the central bank just has to announce it ? I think in the next month, two months max. It?s already passed the board,? he said.
