Mr. Reiner Martin, Joint Vienna Institute
Almost one year has passed since the start of the global Covid-19 pandemic, and the world continues to struggle with the financial and economic fallout of this global health crisis. Although an unprecedented policy response helped to avert a financial meltdown and maintain the flow of credit to the economy, the outlook remains highly uncertain, and vulnerabilities are rising in several sectors and countries. Corporate liquidity pressures may morph into insolvencies with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), especially in emerging economies being particularly vulnerable. Besides, although the global banking system is well-capitalized, some banking systems may experience strains in an adverse scenario. This JVI Webinar will take stock of these and other key global and European financial stability challenges.
The webinar will be held in English.
