"If Chinese banks offer to work with our strategic companies and those companies agree to this, we will, of course, respect their wishes and add them to our list [of eligible banks]," Moiseyev told RIA Novosti.
Moiseyev was speaking at the ongoing Boao economic forum on Hainan Island in southern China.
He said that only one Chinese subsidiary today meets the country's capital ratio requirements that set the threshold at 5 billion rubles (some $86 million).
"I learned only just now… that some subsidiaries of Chinese banks in Russia would like to work with our strategic firms but cannot do that due to the existing regulation. We will obviously reconsider once any of them contacts us," the minister said.
Chinese banks brought the the issue of more access to Russian state companies into limelight during the Boao conference, which is part of China's effort to expand its economies ties with nations in the region.
