author: Rasul Hamidullin

The all-Russian conference “The national payment system and the role of the Bank of Russia in its realization” will take place in Saint-Petersburg on September 7-9 and the chairman of the National Bank of Bashkortostan Rustem Mardanov will take part in it.

Earlier the President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev suggested that the unified national payment system should be established in the country and on its base all citizens of Russia have to be provided with the social cards. In his opinion the opportunities on social service payment and on receiving the social payments on a cashless settlement have to be substantially widened.
