Strategies for a post-crisis world: enhancing European growth
Keynote speeches at the Brussels Economic Forum 2010

The 11th Brussels Economic Forum, held on 25-26 May 2010, took place against a background of the Greek debt crisis and keen debate on the future of Europe's economic governance. In that sense it took place at the ideal moment. Participants debated the causes and consequences of the crisis, and the best way to spur economic growth in Europe, including on how to make growth greener and more sustainable.

This special edition of DG ECFIN's Economic Brief series reproduces the keynote speeches from the conference.
