In the framework of its annual programme of cooperation with central banks of emerging economies, the Bank of Italy has organized a seminar in Rome on the main international standards and guidelines defined to preserve the business continuity of financial systems, and the Italian experience in implementing them.

Representatives from 25 central banks of new EU member states, EU candidates and potential candidates, countries included in the EU neighbourhood policy and other emerging countries are participating in the seminar, which focuses on the role of a central bank in assuring market liquidity, preserving domestic and cross-border trading, protecting clearing and settlement activities, and securing the continuity of its own business processes.
