Yesterday we have come together against the coronavirus!⁣

The pandemic is affecting every single country in the world. It has brought heartache and heartbreak, pain and suffering to millions of people. It has put enormous strain on healthcare and welfare systems, but it has also brought the best out of humanity.⁣

Governments from across the 🌍 world teamed up with health organisations and partners to contribute to the worldwide pledging marathon, which will run until the end of May.⁣

We at the European Commission mobilised €1.4 billion for the Coronavirus Global Response. All together, we raised €7.4 billion ($8 billion) in initial funding to develop 🔬 diagnostics, 💊 treatments and 💉 vaccines and make them accessible for everyone globally! But this is only the beginning.

After governments, civil society and people worldwide need to join in, in a global mobilisation of hope and resolve. This is the true power of unity and humanity.⁣

The world is united against the coronavirus, and the world will win!

The IMF has doubled the access to its emergency facilities—the Rapid Credit Facility (RCF) and Rapid Financing Instrument (RFI)—to meet the expected demand of about $100 billion in financing. These facilities allow the Fund to provide emergency assistance without the need to have a full-fledged program in place. Learn more about how the IMF is helping countries. IMF.org/COVID19

Asia was hit hard by the first wave of the coronavirus, as the sudden stop in activity struck households and firms simultaneously. Policymakers responded swiftly with aggressive spending to support the medical response and vulnerable households and firms. And central banks took swift actions to expand liquidity.

While this helped support financial markets and sentiment, we may be on the cusp of a new, more dangerous phase of “economic deleveraging” as firms struggle to repay loans and pay workers in the face of a sudden collapse in cashflow and tighter credit. Smaller firms need a temporary lifeline—an economy-wide “working capital bridge loan”—that goes well beyond current policies.

This financial support is essential for maintaining jobs and incomes and preventing the downturn from turning into a prolonged depression that permanently damages the economy. Only the public sector has the means to extend this lifeline in the face of a such an unprecedented shock. ow.ly/m2ND50zmt4r

While news of COVID-19 dominates headlines and many of us practice social distancing, there still remains the need for action on climate change – and satellites are vital in providing the key facts on this global issue.

04/04/2020

Resilient and accessible central bank operated payment infrastructures could quickly become more prominent, including retail central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). Such infrastructures would need to withstand a large range of shocks, including pandemics and cyber attacks. Auer and Böhme (2020) lay out potential architectures for resilient CBDC and technological options allowing for broad acceptability. In the context of the current crisis, CBDC would in particular have to be designed allowing for access options for the unbanked and (contact-free) technical interfaces suitable for the whole population.
The pandemic may hence put calls for CBDCs into sharper focus, highlighting the value of having access to diverse means of payments, and the need for any means of payments to be resilient against a broad range of threats.

Quantum Impact: Bringing the power of quantum to chemistry

Chemistry helps make up our world – yet there is still a lot we don’t know. Because our most powerful classical computers are limited in the chemical modeling they can perform, so are the solutions they can unlock. But quantum computing could change that.

🗞 [Communiqué] La Banque de France et la BCE s'engagent sur un paquet global, pour aider les entreprises et les PME à passer le cap du Covid-19.

En renforcement des décisions budgétaires annoncées, la Banque Centrale Européenne et la Banque de France mettent donc en oeuvre immédiatement un ensemble important de mesures, en deux volets complémentaires :

1️⃣) un "paquet européen" puissant pour la liquidité des banques et le bon financement de l'économie ;
2⃣) des mesures nationales fortes pour garantir la bonne transmission de cet ensemble de décisions, et le soutien aux PME.

Central banks garner greatest confidence for digital money issuance

Central banks have the most significant mandate to issue a digital currency, according to the results of our global opinion poll on trust in payments institutions and payment preferences. Across a sample of 13,000 respondents, central banks were one of only three institutions in whose potential digital currency offering individuals placed positive net confidence, the others being payments service providers and commercial banks. Major internet technology companies were widely distrusted to issue digital money, an important finding in the context of Facebook’s ongoing attempts to launch Libra and growing discourse on central banks digital currencies.

FRANCE COIN

FRANCE COIN is the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).

Central banks around the world are experimenting with so-called Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). But what is it and why does it matter? CBDC is a digitized version of domestic currency where the central bank issues new money equivalent to – and redeemable for – its domestic currency, often removing the equivalent amount of currency from the money supply. It could be issued using distributed ledger technology, where transactions would operate and settle on a peer-to-peer basis. CBDC can also be issued using traditional centralized technologies. CBDC may be issued for general use (“retail” CBDC) for peer-to-peer payments and payments from consumers to merchants; or for use by commercial banks and clearing houses (“wholesale” CBDC) for more efficient interbank payments that occur outside traditional correspondent banking and other payment systems.
