SNS/SHoF Finance panel: Should Sweden join the European Banking Union?
The Swedish Government has appointed an inquiry to analyse the implications of Sweden possibly joining the European Banking Union.
The inquiry is to report on the advantages, disadvantages and risks associated with participating in or remaining outside the Banking union.
Some of the topics analysed are: How will supervision and crisis management be affected? What will be the consequences for the competitiveness of the Swedish banking system? On what conditions can Sweden participate?
The inquiry chair, Director General Anna-Karin Jatko, was presenting the report.
Nicolas Véron, Bruegel and the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) and one of the leading authorities on the Banking Union commented on the report from a European perspective.
