Date: 18 April 2023 
Venue: ESM at 6A circuit de la Foire Internationale (L1347 Luxembourg)


The ICMA Luxembourg regional committee invited ICMA members and all interested market participants to attend this in-person event in Luxembourg, including a panel discussion on the potential impact of wholesale central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) on debt capital markets.

Some issuers have started testing DLT-based solutions for their funding operations and this trend is expected to continue, also in light of the DLT Pilot Regime. Among the different requirements needed to make a DLT-based environment scalable, efficient and secure, there is certainly a reliable digital cash component, such as CBDCs, to enable instant settlement.
