Objectives of the session

This session will focus primarily on the possible improvements of the European financial legislative/regulatory process in order to make it sufficiently responsive to the rapid development of financial innovations.

Taking into account the lessons from the past EU legislature, speakers will also be invited to propose pragmatic adaptations to the EU regulatory process in order to achieve less complex and more efficient regulatory frameworks in order to contribute to better integrated and resilient banking and capital markets and respond to digital and environmental transitions.

Points of discussion

Is the European legislative process sufficiently responsive to the rapid development of financial innovations? What institutional arrangements or processes should be proposed in this respect?

How to make the EU legislative framework simpler and more efficient in order to give the appropriate answer to EU financial challenges?
