Symposium   Virtual   
  Tue 21 Sep 2021 08:25 - 11:30

This high-level, half-day event will bring together Europe’s three key borrowers: the Next Generation EU, European Investment Bank and the European Stability Mechanism. We will discuss the state of play for the NGEU recovery programme and the landscape for borrowing in the region in the current investment climate. Joining us on the day will be other leading issuers, investors and intermediaries to discuss the challenges and opportunities the new world of European sovereign debt presents to traditional sovereign, supranational and agency issuers from the region.
