The Conference will be organized in three sections, and will discuss domestic and foreign risks to banking system stability in Emerging Europe, with particular focus on the Albanian and SEE economies and challenges that these risks present for central banks, as well as central banks’ response to these challenges in terms of macro-financial, institutional, legal and regulatory policies.
