Convergence of Banking Sector Regulations and its Impact on Bank Performances and Growth

The Case for Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia


This study compared the banking sector regulations in four Southern Mediterranean countries, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, and Tunisia, to the international standards and most notably the EU’s Mediterranean members. It aimed to assess the extent of convergence between these systems and to distinguish between different regulatory and supervisory practices in their contribution to bank performance and economic growth.
