We welcome the opportunity to comment on the European Commission proposals and ideas on improving FIU cooperation and strengthening Anti-Money Laundering and Combatting Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) supervision at EU-level. Acknowledging the seriousness of the current money laundering cases we believe that these cases are based – insofar as this can be judged – not on regulatory, but on enforcement deficiencies of the competent authorities.Download
With this paper the European Association of Public Banks (EAPB) and the European Association of Guarantee Institutions (AECM) would like to express their views on the newest developments in the negotiations concerning the regulation proposal for the InvestEU Programme 2021-27.Download
The European Association of Public Banks (EAPB) is presenting this paper commenting on the amendments tabled by Members of European Parliament to the Draft Report to the regulation proposal establishing the InvestEU Programme in the MFF 2021-27. Since some 800 amendments were tabled to the ECON & BUDG Secretariat, the EAPB is offering short, summarizing comments from the perspective of national and regional promotional banks or institutions (NPBIs) foreseen to become the implementing partners of this programme.Download
The EAPB welcomes the deletion of the Project Team as a key step in making the governance structure more efficient. In addition, we would like to draw the attention of the European Parliament to the confusing composition of the amendments modifying the governance structure. Not only is it unclear what is the envisaged final wording of the Regulation but also readers also entirely miss the actual mission and tasks of the Steering Board and the Advisory Board, as well as the integration of the Risk Management in the overall governance structure.Download
The promotional banks undertake funding activities, pursuing the governmental economic policies. They are not only experienced with the execution of ESIF, but as specialist credit institutions hold a great expertise in different European and national financial instruments. Thanks to their knowledge of the local economies and markets, the public promotional banks are key partners for the national governments and the European Union in designing all promotional financial instruments.Download
