ECB Forum on Central Banking

20 years of European Economic and Monetary Union

17-19 June 2019

The ECB Forum on Central Banking takes place once a year in Sintra, Portugal, and is organised by the European Central Bank.

It brings together central bank governors, academics, policymakers and financial market participants to exchange views on key monetary policy issues.

The theme of this year’s conference was “20 years of European Economic and Monetary Union”. To mark this important milestone, the Forum examined macroeconomic convergence and monetary policy over the last 20 years and considered how to address the challenges for economic growth in the euro area in the future.
