HE Dr Wolfgang Schäuble, Federal Minister of Finance, Germany
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett, Director, Chatham House


Dr Schäuble will argue that governments in and beyond the eurozone need not just commit to fiscal consolidation and improved competitiveness, they need to start delivering on these objectives with immediate effect. He will say that in the area of financial market reform, neither politics nor the financial industry can afford 'regulatory fatigue'. He will conclude that if the international community is committed to fostering confidence in, and integrity of, financial markets, it will be essential to both bring public deficits down and ratchet financial market regulation up.

This event is held in association with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the LSE German Society.
