The euro area Ministers in charge of Economy and Finance met on 16 November 2010, the day after the failed conciliation meeting to try and reach an agreement on the whole negotiation package for the 2011 EU budget. Only months after saving Greece from bankruptcy in May 2010, the 16-country euro area has been shaken anew by concerns that Ireland will be unable to pay the cost of rescuing its banks. Ireland is paying billions to fix banks brought low by the end of its real estate boom, ballooning its budget deficit and frightening its creditors. Olli Rehn, Member of the EC in charge of Economic and Monetary Affairs said the EU, together with the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, are working on the problem. Ministers will have to reassure lenders and stop a bond market panic that has threatened to engulf other vulnerable countries such as Portugal and Spain.
