EuropeanIssuers held webinars on the link between Capital Markets Union and Europe’seconomic recovery, sustainability reporting and digitalisation of European companies.
EuropeanIssuers, representing the interests of publicly quoted companies across Europe,
organised its annual EuropeanIssuers Capital Markets Webinar Series, addressing the EU

Around 250 participants watched the webinars live. The webinars gathered broad cross-

The first webinar: ‘How Can the Capital Markets Union New Action Plan Boost Europe's

pandemic, markets across Europe have stayed open and we have even seen record number of

markets play for companies’ growth and the economic recovery. We at Nasdaq find it very
