The French Banking Federation (FBF) meets the European commissioners Valdis Dombrovskis, Jyrki Katainen and Jonathan Hill in Brussels

Frédéric Oudéa, chairman of the French Banking Federation (FBF), the members of the Executive Committee and Marie-Anne Barbat-Layani, chief executive officer of the FBF, meet three European commissioners today to discuss issues related to the funding of the economy and fostering growth in Europe, as well as the banking sectors regulatory agenda.

They will have successive meetings with:

  • Jonathan Hill, European commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union;
  • Valdis Dombrovskis, Vice-President of the European Commission, responsible for the Euro and Social Dialogue;
  • Jyrki Katainen, European commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs.

These meetings will provide the opportunity for discussing the terms for successfully implementing a Capital Markets Union in Europe, in addition to raising the proposals in progress such as bank structural reform. French banks recall the need for maintaining the ability of banks to fund companies, through bank loans and capital markets, and therefore preserve the universal banking model.
