QED Lunch debate - EU-US financial regulation dialogue

14 May 2013, 12:30 - 15:00

Stanhope Hotel, Rue de Commerce 9, 1000 Brussels


The EU and US response to the financial crisis have common objectives and are largely based on the same standards and principles. But details in the legislations and, in particular, those set out in the implementing measures run the risk of causing legal uncertainty, duplicative regulatory costs and compliance complexity. How can we turn the tide? How can the EU-US dialogue be revived?
