Take a chance on me: Sweden considers the Banking Union

This event will discuss if Sweden should join the European banking union and the general state of the union.


Fredrik Bystedt

Head of Committee on Potential Participation in the European Banking Union,

Should Sweden join the European banking union? The Swedish government asked themselves the same question and commissioned an independent inquiry into the advantages, disadvantages and risks associated with participating in or remaining outside the banking union.

At this event, the head of the commissioned committee, Fredrik Bystedt, presented the results of the inquiry. After the presentation, a panel discussion addressed the general state of the banking union as well as Sweden’s possible participation.
