Joint Conference by the European Research Centre for Economic Governance (EURO-CEFG)
On 16 November 2018 the European Research Centre for Economic Governance (EURO-CEFG) of the Universities of Leiden, Delft and Rotterdam and the Centre for European Economic Law and Governance at the University of Wrocław invite, together with the University of Warsaw, the leading EU think tanks Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) and Bruegel as well as the European Capital Markets Institute (ECMI), to a high-level conference in Warsaw on 'EU Financial Markets: East meets West'. The conference will discuss in four panels with speakers from supervisors, policymakers and academia from Eastern and Western Europe the following topics turning around the differences and similarities of financial markets in the East and the West and their needs for regulation.
- Regional differences in financial intermediation: the eastern and western EU
- The euro area and its neighbours – links and prospects for the financial sector
- Social utility of the financial system: the role of regulation and supervision
- Capital Markets Union: EU-wide capital market or regional consolidation?
The panel discussions will be introduced by a keynote speech by Dr. Elke König, Chair of the Single Resolution Board (SRB). This conference brings together high-level experts from academia, from regulators and from banks coming from the West and from the East who will analyse the similarities and differences in the functioning of financial markets in the Eastern and Western parts of the EU. They will also attempt to outline scenarios of further development of financial markets and related regulatory challenges.
