Radisson Blu Hotel Lietuva, Konstitucijos Av. 20, Vilnius, Lithuania

The 9th International Financial Markets conference “Strengthening recovery, developing resilience”, co-organized by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania and the Lithuanian Banking Association, brings together high-level policymakers and business practitioners for the thought-leadership and idea-exchange on the topical issues of the financial markets and beyond.

In 2020, the world was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which highlighted the relevance of cooperation, flexibility and preparedness for unforeseen challenges both in the everyday life and the economy. 2022 has brought new trials. The war in Ukraine, started by Russia, has led to turbulences in different sectors from energy to finance. An urgent need to adapt to unexpected changes as soon as possible simultaneously called for the strengthening of the overall resilience.

As a forum for discussions about the needs of the EU and Baltic capital markets, and required action with speakers and participants from the EU institutions, Baltic states and the industry, the conference will address current issues, including the impact of the war in Ukraine on the capital markets and the special relevance of access to finance for businesses in challenging times. Moreover, it will discuss the further development course of the capital markets for the Baltic countries, and will overview the deployment of digitization and innovation in the sector.
