Regulating Financial Markets Post-Crisis

A Balance Sheet
The conference will be broadcast live in the internet.

For the CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the German Bundestag, financial market policy belongs to the essential elements in revitalizing the principles of economic governance. Our goal is to create an effective and internationally consistent financial regulatory framework in order to provide a more robust and resilient financial system. Together with the Federal Government, we have made considerable progress towards this goal, but we are not quite there yet.

At our conference „Regulating Financial Markets Post-Crisis – A Balance Sheet“, we would like to discuss how ministries, central banks, supervisory authorities and stakeholders can support the reform process.

Volker Kauder
Chairman of the CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the German Bundestag


Klaus-Peter Flosbach
Financial policy spokesman of the CDU/CSU Parliamentary Group in the German Bundestag
