Europe's Economies: Striking a Balance between Consolidation and Reform

Chatham House, London

Participants

Anders Borg, Minister for Finance, Sweden

Overview

The speaker will outline key priorities that need to be addressed in order to tackle Europe's financial turmoil, weak public finances, anaemic growth and high unemployment. While progress has been made, he will argue that fiscal consolidation remains a challenge and discuss how policymakers can strike a balance between strengthening public finances, sustaining demand and promoting growth.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only. To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
