Economic history conference: The birth of inter-war central banks: building a new monetary order

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the operation of the Bank of Greece. To celebrate the event, the Bank is organising an international economic history conference, to be held in Athens on November 2-3, 2018. The conference is titled The birth of inter-war central banks: building a new monetary order and shall focus on central banking in the inter-war years, particularly the string of new banks that were established in the 1920s and 1930s. The discussion, which will be open to conference participants and members of the press, offers an opportunity to take a more long-term view of current policy challenges and the prospects of central bank cooperation within the Eurozone.
