ECCU currency

St. Kitts and cialis soft generic Nevis (WINN):  Credit Union delegates from the OECS sub-region are discussing new regulations and laws to better govern their operations.

But not everyone is happy with the good choice proposed changes.

Some of www.tvpactivism.com the regulations are in conflict with the legislation, according to the President of the St Kitts and Nevis National Cooperative League – Andy Liburd.

“We are now faced with new regulations, news acts, new laws, new standards.  They are all coming down on us, and all at the same time,” Liburd complained.

Liburd did not go into details about the specific regulations fuelling his concern.

Are members' savings within particular credit unions insured, or backed up by other associated larger entities, in case of bankruptcies?

That is a concern!
