First Banque de France-Banca d’Italia workshop in empirical corporate finance

9 June 2017, Paris, Banque de France

The Banque de France hosted on Friday, 9 June 2017, the first Banque de France-Banca d’Italia workshop in empirical corporate finance at its conference center in Paris. Jointly organized by the Bank of France’s Microeconomic and Structural Analysis Directorate and the Bank of Italy’s Structural Economic Analysis Directorate, this workshop on invitation aimed at enhancing exchanges of views and research cooperation among economists from both institutions with a research interest in empirical corporate finance and banking. The papers presented covered topics like the impact of banking market concentration on credit supply, the benefits of relationship lending during the financial crisis, and the role of credit constraints in explaining investment, productivity and firm creation. This workshop is intended to be the first of a series of regular research meetings between economists of both institutions on these and connected issues of primary policy relevance.
