At the Your opinion counts roundtable, we want to hear what people and organisations think about changes in the economy, how much you have been affected by changes in prices, whether low interest rates have been good or bad for you, and whether there are other topical issues that the central bank should be focusing more attention on.

The round table is intended for people representing professional associations and unions, citizens’ initiatives and interest groups. Participation is by invitation. The wider public can follow the discussions in a livestream.
