Prime Minister Dr Robert Golob at the Euro Summit meeting: Our banking system is very liquid and capital adequacy is very high
Prime Minister Dr Robert Golob attended the Euro Summit in Brussels, attended by ECB President Christine Lagarde and Eurogroup President Paschal Donohoe.
With ECB President Lagarde, the leaders exchanged views on the economic situation in the Union, in particular in the light of recent developments in financial markets in the US and Switzerland. It was confirmed that the European banking sector is stable, with strong capital adequacy and liquidity.
“Today we had a very interesting discussion on the state of the European banking system,” said Prime Minister Golob after the meeting, adding that the president of the ECB and the president of the euro area presented their analyses of the recent events and the state of the European banking system. “The European banking system is resilient in the face of the disruption we have witnessed. All parameters, from liquidity to capital adequacy, are within the regulatory limits. It is precisely because of the rules in force in the European banking system, which are much stricter than those in the two countries concerned, that we can indeed rest assured,” underlined the Prime Minister Dr Robert Golob.
At the end of the summit, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia stressed that the Slovenian banking system is part of the euro area: “The same rules apply. Our banking system is very liquid and capital adequacy is very high.”
