EACT Chairman Richard Raeburn was invited to give evidence on the EU's proposals for bank capital requirements (CRD IV), at a meeting of the ECON committee of the European Parliament on 11 October 2011.

He also focuses on the impact of CRD IV on borrowing costs, overall access to funding, trade finance and the EU's international competitiveness.
