Building on the success of our inaugural scene-setting Capital Markets Union Summit last May, this event is the first in a series of ECMU implementation events which we plan to hold every six months over the next two years, with the programme in each case focusing on those initiatives that are current at that point (e.g. on recently launched consultation or discussion papers and legislative proposals).
