The Covid-19 health crisis marked the beginning of a difficult and complex year for Central Banks worldwide, who deployed quantitative easing programmes and liquidity injections on an unprecedented scale to manage the crisis. Now, as the focus shifts to the global recovery effort, there are clear signs of a move towards building back not only better but greener.

After decades of building strong relationships within the central bank sector, BNP Paribas was proud to partner with central banks in navigating the crisis, and we look forward to strengthening these relationships further for the recovery effort
