On behalf of German Economic Team, Centre for Economic Strategy and Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting we cordially invite you to join the discussion “How did the banking sector get through the COVID crisis, and what are the prospects for lending recovery?”. It will be carried out on Monday, September 28, at 14:00 in Zoom.

Ukraine’s banking system has undergone a fundamental reform process, resulting in a much sounder, yet also smaller sector. The new monetary policy priority was proclaimed to be lending restoration and economic growth backed by flexible inflation targeting, while the 2020 COVID-19 crisis presented new challenges to the banking sector. We invite you to discuss the current situation in the banking sector of Ukraine and prospects for 2021 with international and Ukrainian experts, bankers and policy-makers.
