The morning session will be devoted to assessing the performance of EMU over the past five years. This will centre around the recently published ECFIN study which concludes that while EMU has been successful from the point of view of creating a zone of macroeconomic stability, the main challenge now is to tackle the remaining causes of slow growth in the Union. Confirmed participants in the morning session will include Klaus Regling, John Llewellyn (Chief Economist of Lehmann Bros.), Christopher Allsopp (New College, Oxford), Vitor Gaspar (Director General of the ECB) and Charles Wyplosz (Graduate Institute for International Studies, Geneva).

The afternoon session will focus on the key topic of how to strengthen economic governance in EMU, in view of the adopted Commission Communication on this subject. A number of high-level participants have been invited to participate in this debate. At the present time, confirmed participants include President Prodi, Commissioner Almunia, Otmar Issing (Executive Board Member of the ECB) and Pervenche Berès (Chairwoman of the EMAC Committee of the European Parliament).

Places at this event are limited. To apply to participate please complete the attached application formmsw8(63 kB) and return to Dominique CORNESSE or Patricia TUITE, preferably by email. The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Brussels.
