On Friday 7 May Mairead McGuinness, European Commissioner for Financial Services, Financial Stability and the Capital Markets Union will address an online event on the theme: "Finance for the Future: A Europe Day Address".
- financial policy | sustainable economic growth strategy | COVID-19 | banking policy
- Friday 7 May 2021, 13:00 - 14:00 (CEST)
In her address, Commissioner McGuinness will reflect on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on how we bank and access finance, and the long-term consequences for the banking sector. Is cash still king? Are FinTechs the future? And what about Big Tech and digital currencies? She will address recent changes in banking, including in the Irish market, and will assess the role of the financial system in meeting our Green Deal goals for a more green and digital future.
The event is open to the public and is free of charge.
It is jointly organised by the Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) and the European Commission Representation in Ireland.
