A new European Investment Bank (EIB) report, the CESEE Bank Lending Survey, provides insights into banking group activities and business expectations in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). The report analyses portfolios, demand and supply for financing and the development of non-performing loans. The new edition includes a special analysis on banking group expectations regarding the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The report is part of regular reporting from the EIB, IMF, EBRD and World Bank for the European bank coordination “Vienna Initiative”, a framework for safeguarding the financial stability of emerging Europe. The EIB survey for the new edition of the report was conducted as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded. Previous editions are accessible here.
The report will be published on Friday 12 June at 12:00, and will be available here.
The Director of the EIB Economics Department Debora Revoltella and the lead author of the report Luca Gattini will present the report in a webinar on Friday 12 June at 11.30.
