Martins Kazaks: What role do central banks play?

Person of Interest by SSE Riga. 20.11.2020.

In this podcast M. Kazāks talks about the role the Central Bank plays in society, what day-to-day operations it performs and how the European Central Bank works thanks to contributions from across the eurozone.

AHK Members' Meeting: Mārtiņš Kazāks, Governor of Latvijas Banka

"5G is not for watching movies. It's for business." These punchy words by Martins Kazaks not only summarise his attitude towards the possibilities the current pandemic has to offer, but also carry the tone of his message about a green and digital future: We have to take it serious! Striving to a sustainable, "green", future does not merely mean to plant more trees but assuring upcoming generations to live in a healthy and stable world, according to Kazaks.
