  Add to Calendar 2020-04-29 13:00 2020-04-29 14:15 Europe/Paris Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SME) financing in the COVID-19 Context

The wide-spread lockdowns that followed the outbreak of COVID-19 are having a substantial impact on real economies and in particular on Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) which struggle to bridge their profit shorfalls.

In this context, this online debate will:

  • reflect on SME profit shortfalls and their need for liquidity.
  • share the emerging challenges for banks in financing SMEs.
  • debate how to best deploy the funds and guarantees being made available to promote long term economic growth, ensure job preservation and keep banks safe and sound.

This online debate follows our last joint online debate on ‘Europe’s Banking System: Fast Forward Six Months‘ in which a number of crucial themes emerged – such as the need for a European Pandemic fund, continued SME lending and debt sustainability – as being core to the recovery.
