A round table on the” Banking regulation and the role of Parliaments” was organized by the World Bank Governance Global Practice, Public Resources Mobilization & Management team in Beirut in cooperation with the Finance and Markets Global Practice in Lebanon in April 2015. The roundtable was hosted by the Training and Legal departments of the Central Bank of Lebanon and the École supérieure des affaires.  The general objective of the round table was to equip Iraqi legislators, in particular the banking sub-committee of the Finance Committee, with the technical knowledge to design policies and frameworks that will enhance the regulatory framework of the banking sector. The banking sub-committee was in the process of revising the banking law and needed specific questions answered. The choice of the Lebanese experience was based on the resilient financial system that Lebanon managed to establish and maintain despite all the odds.
