The workshop opened with a welcome speech by José Manuel Campa, EBA Chair, and a keynote speech by Hyun Song Shin, Economic Adviser and Head of Research at the BIS with the title: “Have we avoided the Covid insolvency wave?”

Prof. Ayadi discussed the paper “Liquidity Insurance vs. Credit Provision: Evidence from the COVID-19 Crisis”, which was presented by Tumer Kapan, IMF, and Camelia Minoiu, Federal Reserve Board, at the Session “COVID-19”, chaired by Jacob Gyntelberg, EBA. The paper studies the link between the unexpected surge in credit line drawdowns in March-April 2020 and banks’ subsequent lending decisions.
