If the "principle of learning" doesn't become a public demands and beliefs, learning organization will not form, theretofore development of these organizations and learning society won't emerge. Our country has the need of learning now more than ever. ICOBIGE missions such as: Conducting scientific and technical seminars with regards to anticipated plans, particularly the ability of the topics to communicate with others outside of the country in order to exchanging knowledge and experiences, would utilize the way of learning organization faster than it was predicted.Iran's economy has formed, based on banks (Money market). Even with the full extension of the capital market, the volume of money market is still more than a few times of capital market in our country. However due to the characteristic of interest-free banking regulations and new definition of banking system under this regulations, supervision of the capital market in this action is directly or indirectly the bank responsibility. So the subject of learning in order to transform the banking system and structural changes in this area – it is possible to positively transform the country's economy, causing interactions – Require scientific interactions in domestic and foreign scenes.
