Proceedings of the Workshop on "Ensuring Access to Basic Banking Services"

15-04-2014

The workshop was organised to prepare the discussion of the expected European Commission proposal on access to a basic payment account which was at the time announced for May or June 2011 in view of the subsequent report of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON). However, in 2011 the Commission finally opted for issuing a Recommendation, the ineffectiveness of which it evaluated first before coming forward with a legislative proposal two years later in May 2013; in fact a proposal for which the European Parliament had called already in July 2012 in a report.
