The event was hosted by MEP Sophie in’t Veld, NL, ALDE at the European Parliament.
Opening the event, MEP in’t VELD stated that Europe is at a significant moment in the development of a single market for retail financial services. She stressed that this is a huge opportunity, despite the hurdles that still exist. “We should push forward with great ambition; particularly in fin tech. Europe can and should lead the world. But we must act now or others will overtake us.”
