Unicon appointed central bank auditor in Russia

Unicon/MS Consulting Group has been appointed as the main auditor of the central bank of Russia for 2002. The bank's PR department said that this decision was reached at a meeting of the National Banking Council chaired by Alexei Kudrin on 30 December.

The CB's audit must by law be submitted to the State Duma by 15 May. This is the first time the National Banking Council rather than the State Duma has appointed the CB auditor.
