Reuben Jeffery III, American Under Secretary for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs, met with Charlie McCreevy, Member of the EC in charge of Internal Market and Services, on 12 February 2008 in Brussels. They discussed EU/United States bilateral relations, including current turmoil in global financial markets, EU and US insurer markets, accounting standards, sovereign wealth funds, credit rating agencies, XBRL developments and mutual recognition of securities regulation. The EU Member States and the European Parliament aim to adopt Solvency II by year-end.
