ECB Forum on Central Banking
The ECB Forum on Central Banking is an annual event organised by the European Central Bank and is ordinarily held in Sintra, Portugal.
It brings together central bank governors, academics, financial market representatives, journalists and others to exchange views on current policy issues and discuss the Forum’s key topic from a longer-term perspective.
ECB Forum on Central Banking - 2021
The next ECB Forum on Central Banking “Beyond the pandemic: the future of monetary policy” will take place as an online event on 28 and 29 September 2021.
During the event we will consider the broader economic implications of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and discuss future challenges for monetary policy. We will be discussing topics such as the future of inflation, employment and the distributional effects of monetary policy, and will examine the link between monetary policy and climate change in a European context. We will also consider the role of corporate indebtedness in a post-pandemic world and reflect on the potentially lasting structural changes brought about by the pandemic across business sectors.
The two days of the ECB Forum are filled with presentations, speeches and discussions highlighting this year's key topic from different angles.Have a look at the programme
