In this role, we strive to maintain, facilitate and improve the performance of the financial system and entities, and promote confident and informed participation by investors and financial consumers. In this event we will reflect on the future of the capital markets’ supervision and regulation, their contribution to the economic recovery, and on how to promote best practices for ethics, responsibility and efficiency, that contribute to sustainable growth and the well-being of our citizens. We will make this meeting a unique moment and we invite you to take time to visit Lisbon, Portugal and experience our hospitality. It will be a pleasure to welcome each and every one of you.
