The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in cooperation with the European Retail Financial Forum (ERFF) is organising a high-level conference on Consumers at the heart of finance in Europe to take place on 26 September in Brussels (room JDE 63) from 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m..

The aim of the conference will be, on the one hand, to create knowledge of and encourage adherence to European Union institutional policy, by disseminating the main messages of the EESC opinions on the

  • Consumer Financial Services Action Plan: Better products and more choice for European consumers,
  • FinTech action plan: for a more competitive and innovative European financial sector,
  • and the upcoming opinion on Action Plan on Sustainable Finance.

On the other hand, the aim will also be to present the challenges involved in moving towards a single market of financial products that are more inclusive and safe for consumers, and to discuss how to improve its application in an increasingly digitalised context.

The conference will give stakeholders the opportunity to express their views and expectations on this issue, which will be a useful base for further reflection at the appropriate political and strategic level.
