STOCKHOLM May 8 Plans by Sweden's financial
watchdog to increase the bank's capital buffers are positive,
but more needs to be done to strengthen the financial system and
deal with high levels of household debt, central bank Deputy
Governor Cecilia Skingsley said.
She said plans confirmed by the FSA on Thursday to raise
mortgage risk weights and to increase banks capital buffers were
a step in the right direction.
"I think that we should move further with gradual measures
to strengthen banks and households," Skingsley told reporters.
