Monday, 23 October at 12.45p.m.  


Ahead of his lunchtime talk, Jeroen Dijsselbloem said: “I will discuss what went wrong before the economic and financial crisis of 2008, the reaction of the Eurozone and what is needed economically and financially to get sustainable growth in the future.”

He added: “Finishing the banking union and capital markets union and further developing the role of the European Stability Mechanism are key factors for the short term.”

The Eurozone crisis brought to light fundamental flaws in the architecture of the single currency and highlighted the need for essential reforms, such as the Banking Union. President Dijsselbloem will discuss the lessons learned from this period, and he will offer his ideas for the future of Eurozone governance.
