Brussels Economic Forum 2011: extracts from the Session I on "Strengthening European economic governance - surveillance of fiscal and macroeconomic imbalances"
The Brussels Economic Forum is the European Union’s premier platform for debate on economic issues. It is an opportunity to meet decision-makers, opinion leaders and other key players from government authorities, international organisations, European institutions, financial institutions, social partners, academia and the media. This year, the time had come for Europe to adopt and implement the full, reformed economic governance framework – from the first European Semester to a robust surveillance of fiscal and macroeconomic policies. Its successful implementation would represent a major overhaul of economic policy coordination in Europe.
On 18/05/2011 in Brussels, Vítor Constâncio, Vice-President of the European Central Bank (ECB), and Klaus Regling, Chief Executive of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF), attended the Session I on "Strengthening European economic governance - surveillance of fiscal and macroeconomic imbalances".
