Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am very pleased to welcome you to this conference of the Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution (ACPR), which this morning focuses on major issues at stake in the review of prudential supervision of banks. The subject is not new, but it is always topical. Let me first stress the greater degree of security already achieved in prudential matters: the agreement of 7 December 2017 on the finalisation of Basel III and the now standard use of macroprudential instruments. I will then touch on what remains to be done in Europe, specifically the completion of the Banking Union, an essential step.
