The European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) coorganises with the Banco de España, the Central Bank of the Republic of Türkiye and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) the seventh Annual Conference of Mediterranean Central Banks: “Building Resilience in Uncertain Times: Safeguarding Financial Stability, Encouraging Investments”.

This is the seventh edition of a joint initiative that aims to foster a comprehensive dialogue on the economic and financial situation of the Mediterranean region from the perspective of the governors of Central Banks of the Mediterranean region.

On this occasion, the two first sessions of the meeting include exchanges between governors of central banks on the monetary policy responses to the current context of uncertainties linked to the COVID-19 crisis and the consequences of the war in Ukraine, as well as on the impact of digital finance on financial and economic integration. The two last sessions gather experts to debate ways to encourage investments to boost industrial and economic development in the Mediterranean region as part of the efforts to recover from the COVID-19 crisis and enhance resilience.
