Thank you for inviting me to speak here today.

In an age when partnerships are discontinued, and walls are built be-tween countries, I find it important to focus on the considerable ad-vantages to our society and its continued development which rule-based international cooperation offers.

I have chosen to talk about three topical issues which, in their separate ways, relate to cross-border cooperation and which are essential to fi-nancial stability in Denmark. They are: anti-money laundering, crisis reso-lution of mortgage credit institutions and the banking union.
