I see the control activity and the work in the Commission not in terms of hibernation, but rather in a proactive strategic position”, he addedThe Chair of the FSC pointed out the challenges facing the non-banking sector – alternative investment funds, financial innovations, the Green Deal and the European legislative framework for digitalization, as defining the equation of the new economic reality – they provide new horizons, but also bring new risks.

Mr. Atanasov also commented on the relationship between academia and practice, stating that “the symbiosis between theory and practice is a valuable way of thinking and acting. The new economic realities must predetermine the preparation of young people and provoke the need for new knowledge, and that is precisely why it is important that the cooperation between the FSC and UNWE is  based on a two-way sharing of practical experience by experts and the academic environment.”.
