NBU urges Ukrainians to trust in stock market

When Ukrainians trust in the domestic stock market, foreigners will come to it as well, director of the department on foreign currency reserve management and operations implementation in the open market of the NBU Oleksandr Dubyhvist said during the debate “Taxation of securities trading: how to fill the budget and not to kill the stock market?” ForUm correspondent reports.
In particular, he reminded that the Ukrainian issuers enter the stock markets of Poland, as “we do not have this market.”
“It is not an argument that we do not have the stock market, so there are no foreigners on it. Let’s look at our population, which now has 40 billion individual deposits in the banking system,” he said.
Dubyhvist also noted that Ukrainians do not buy bonds because of imperfect legislation, which allows not paying dividends.
According to him, public securities transactions will become more profitable after the improvement of the law, thus pricing will become transparent, and the dividends will be paid.
As an example, he cited the currency treasury bills of the Finance Ministry for individuals.
“When the Finance Ministry created a liquid instrument with the presence of the obligations of the State Bank (Oschadbank – Ed.,) able to support two-way quotes – people understand that they will return their money and all financial processes are transparent.
As a reminder, in October, the government introduced the bill “On amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine on further improvement of the taxes and fees administration.”

FIFA approves goal-line technology

Following FIFA’s historic decision to approve the usage of goal-line technology (GLT), the first two technology providers, GoalRef and Hawk-Eye, have signed licence agreements. This milestone in the GLT process, which began in 2011, means that the two companies now have official authorization to install their respective goal-line technology systems worldwide.

Once a system has been installed in a stadium, the system undergoes a final inspection to check its functionality. The results of the final installation test must be accepted by the licensee’s customer, i.e. the competition organizer, club or stadium operator, before the system can be put into operation, FIFA website reports.

Only a positive final installation test qualifies a system to be used in official matches. When this occurs, the system is awarded the FIFA QUALITY PRO mark.

As a reminder, FIFA agreed to install goal-line technology system after a series of serious errors by referees at tournaments of high level, including world championship of 2010 in South Africa and Euro-2012 in Ukraine and Poland.
