ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the final Basel III, a package of revision measures adopted by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision. He argues that the final package Basel III is intended to strengthen the supervision, regulation and risk management of the banking sector. He adds that the reforms represent a series of regulatory, political and policy compromises. Moreover, the Basel III provisions represent an intelligent and balance compromise that responds to the financial crisis.
