“We are intensely gentle with a positions, a investments and liquidity in a systems,” he continued, adding that he saw no need for a supervision to step into a marketplace and buy bonds.

“We’re still a AA nation and we’re one of a tip 20 or 25 globally on a ratings … so we consider we are really most improved than a lot of people around us.”
