    • Standard measures – open market operations, standing facilities, minimum reserves
    • Non-standard measures – Targeted longer-term refinancing operations (TLTRO), asset purchase programs, forward guidance
    • Eurosystem balance sheet
  • Monetary policy implementation in national central banks

The webinar is primarily designed for policymakers and staff in banking operations of non-Eurosystem central banks, as well as those involved in supporting and developing the financial infrastructure. Officials at ministries of finance, line ministries, and other government bodies in South East Europe are also invited to take part, as it is designed as to provide an informative overview of central bank operations.
