PARIS (Reuters) – The European Central Bank’s Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Monday it was necessary to work on eliminating regulatory obstacles that hinder banking cross-boarder mergers in Europe.

“In 2018, we should continue to continue our efforts to encourage consolidation in the European financial sector,” Villeroy told journalists in Paris.

He added that it was crucial to complete the banking union.
