Co-operative Banks: Key Driving Force To Economic Recovery
8th April 2010, European Parliament, Brussels
In the aftermath of the financial crisis and at the start of a new legislative mandate for the European Commission and the European Parliament, the 4th Convention was the occasion to promote co-operative banks and their specific business model in a changing context. Discussions focused this year on their key role in Europe to lead the economic recovery. Marking the 40 years of the EACB (European Association of Co-operative Banks), this high level global event was an opportunity for co-operative banks leaders, policy makers and high level managers to discuss their concerns and reflect on future perspectives of the European banking landscape in the presence of European institutions, international organisations, regulators, academics, think tanks, press and relevant stakeholders.
