10 years on – Lessons from the Banking Union for future financial regulation with Gunnar Hökmark, MEP

Economic, Financial, and Banking Affairs
Date: Wednesday, 05 December 2018 12:00 - 13:30

Venue: British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium, Brussels  |  City: Bruxelles

Gunnar Hökmark, a leading figure in the ECON Committee, will share his experience and insights as well as his reflections on the past years of prudential regulation in the EU from a policymakers’perspective. Navigating the interplay of global rules, Brussels politics, intergovernmental as well as inter-institutional politics in trilogues has been and still is a major challenge for everybody involved.

Has the right balance been struck? What still needs to be done? What lessons are to be learnt for future regulatory mammoth projects of a similar nature?

Join the debate and share your thoughts in a Chatham House rule setting.
