    MACRON: French President Emmanuel Macron and four eastern
European Union leaders sought to smooth relations on Friday
after publicly trading barbs over jobs and democratic values.
    Macron, in power for little more than a month, has vowed to
protect French workers from what he sees as "social dumping", in
which companies employ cheaper labour, and unfair competition
from the poorer eastern European states.
    Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic say they
should be allowed to compete on lower prices - just as more
developed western EU nations compete on quality products and
know-how - to catch up after decades of communist stagnation.

    EBA: With little support for a European Union-backed bad
bank to clean up the huge pile of soured loans in Europe,
national authorities should at least get a common blueprint to
deal with the problem, the banking sector watchdog's head said
on Friday.
    Speaking on the sidelines of a consumer protection
conference in Prague, EBA Chairman Andrea Enria said there
remained a misperception that the bad loan problem was only
concentrated in a few countries.

government.

    CENBANK: Central bank Vice-Governor Mojmir Hampl defended
the bank's steps to get ahead of strong credit growth in the
mortgage sector. He said critics say the bank is trying to put
out a fire it started but said this is a false argument as
nothing is 'burning, so it is not necessary to put it out'.
    He said the bank is only warning about the risks of a fire
in the mortgage market and working toward its prevention.
