Following today’s Executive Committee of the European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB), a joint Press Conference with Associazione Nazionale fra le Banche Popolari (ANBP) and BCC Federcasse, the two Italian members of the EACB, was hosted at Palazzo Altieri in Rome.
The joint Press Conference featured statements from Andrea Moltrasio, President of UBI Banca’s Supervisory Board and new Vice-President of the EACB; Alessandro Azzi, President of Federcasse; Hervé Guider, General Manager of the EACB; and Christian Talgorn, President of the EACB.
Among the topics raised: the strength of co-operative banks in Europe, their resilience, and the need of a regulatory framework that respects the unique features of the co-operative model.
It was also announced that the EACB Executive Committee had agreed at the end of its proceedings to issue a ‘Rome Declaration’ titled "To think, act and dream co-operative in the Banking Union era". The document will be published shortly on the EACB website.
