Russians direct “banking” and digitization of banks in Cuba
Anton Sviridenko, executive director of the aforementioned institute, insisted on the necessity of “taking advantage of the Russian experience in digitizing tax control and electronic banking services, and combining these technologies within a digital platform.”
It is clearly in the interests of Russian officials that their proposals be heard and that they work “jointly” for the “success” of the island’s economic transformation. One of the big proposals is to create a “Business Development Bank” in cooperation with Russian banks.
According to this information, said bank will have to keep records of commercial entities, provide online registration, open accounts, maintain cash and settlement services, transfer taxes as a financial agent, and transmit data in automatic format to the Cuban fiscal authority.
“The creation of the Development Bank will double the ability to control the payment of taxes, will significantly reduce the circulation of cash and will lead to the abolition of the dollar in the Cuban economy. In addition, the introduction of the platform will create a basis for analyzing the economic situation and controlling prices.”
