Dear Members,

Welcome to the eleventh monthly newsletter designed to keep BIIA members informed of the significant developments on the policy dossiers being worked on in Europe.

In the last month there were a number of policy developments that were relevant for our association on the topics of Data Protection, Capital Markets Union and SME Access to Finance and the Retail Financial Services Green Paper and Action Plan. In addition, the European Parliament issued a draft report on FinTech, which is expected to be adopted in spring, and contribute to the growing EU policy discussion on the topic. As BIIA members will know the subject of FinTech is a core element of the 2017 Biennial Conference taking place in Thailand on 19th and 20th October.
