The positive developments at Oschadbank in 2003-2006, the raising of additional authorized capital, and the noticeable support from the State as the Bank’s sole shareholder provide a solid basis for an effective action program aimed at restoring and maintaining both its positions as a stable, transparent and competitive banking institution closely cooperating with state-run companies and its leadership in retail banking.
