WEBINAR: The COVID-19 Crisis and the Role of Community Finance in Recovery
MADISON, WI (October 27, 2020) — World Council of Credit Unions and its European Network of Credit Unions (ENCU) joins the European Parliament Credit Union Interest Group (EPCUIG) to invite you to a virtual roundtable:
The COVID-19 Crisis and the Role of Community Finance in Economic Recovery.
Tuesday, November 10, 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. US Central Standard Time. (CST).
The pandemic has had a number of far-reaching impacts on European businesses, economies and societies. The widespread disruption caused by lockdowns and continuous uncertainty has damaged businesses’ profitability, and led to a rise in unemployment and economic hardship for a significant share of European citizens. With the prospect of a large-scale economic recession looming large in Europe, the road to economic recovery is likely to be difficult.
In this context, the aim of our virtual roundtable will be to look at the economic and regulatory impact of the pandemic in the EU, and to examine the ways in which community finance and financial inclusion initiatives can aid the post-COVID-19 recovery.
The roundtable will feature panelists from:
- The European Commission
- The European Parliament
- The European Banking Authority
- Social Economy Europe
- Polish National Association of Cooperative Savings and Credit Unions (NACSCU)
- Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU)
We sincerely hope to be able to welcome you to this webinar.
