​​​​​​​The ECB’s contribution to the NPLs action plan​

Discussion with Boris Kisselevsky, Head of the ECB's Representative Office in Brussels

Venue: ESBG premises, 11 Rue Marie-Thérèse, Brussels, Belgium

According to the EBA Risk Dashboard, EU banks continue to improve overall quality of their loan's portfolio and the average ratio of non-performing loans (NPLs) to total loans continues its downward trend. Nevertheless, the widespread dispersion among EU countries, along with still high amount of NPLs in banks' balance sheets, remain a vulnerability for the European banking sector as a whole.

In March 2018 the Commission proposed an ambitious and comprehensive package of measures to tackle NPLs in Europe, capitalising on the significant progress already made in reducing risks in the banking sector.

The first discussion of the event series "ESBG Spotlight" will focus on the action plan set to tackle NPLs in Europe and will present the perspective and contribution of the European Central Bank. ​
