15 BANCA NAŢIONALĂ A ROMÂNIEI Conclusions A disorderly unfold of the EA sovereign debt crisis would impact Romania through: (i) a deterioration of the availability of funding (through both price and quantitative channels), and (ii) a weakening economic growth prospects. The Romanian banking sector and the companies involved in foreign trade are adequately equipped to withstand external adverse developments. Credit conditions orderly developed in Romania, the central bank taking early measures: (i) calling for additional capital from banks shareholders, (ii) supporting Vienna Initiative type arrangements, and (iii) fostering cooperation with home supervisory authorities. Carrying on prudent policy implementation, in line with EU and IMF arrangements, will continue to provide confidence to the markets and to keep the prudential buffers to adequate levels.
