How effective were policy measures in supporting bank lending during the Covid-19 crisis?

Research conference hosted by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the Committee on the Global Financial System, 10–11 May 2022 in hybrid format at the BIS headquarters in Basel, Switzerland

Many countries implemented exceptional policy measures to support bank lending during the Covid-19 crisis. Some policy measures were intended to strengthen banks' lending capacity and others to incentivise banks to use their available capacity. This conference features research studying how these policy measures affected the availability and allocation of bank credit, with the goal of informing future policy decisions.
