Relations with local institutions

The Central Bank of Malta collaborates with local authorities and institutions, as well as with the Maltese banking and financial sector on various matters of common interest, particularly where such collaboration contributes to financial sector stability, the smooth operation of payments and securities settlement systems and the collection of statistical and other information.

In this context, the Bank has already entered into agreements with the Malta Financial Services Authority concerning the exchange of information and another concerning payment and securities settlement systems.

The Bank has also entered into an agreement with the National Statistics Office on the collection and compilation of statistics. Another agreement regulates the exchange of data and co-operation between the National Statistics Office, the Ministry for Finance and Employment and the Central Bank of Malta in the area of government finance statistics.
