On 10 June 2011, the conference “Economic Governance in the European Union” was held in Bucharest, jointly organized by the National Bank of Romania (NBR), the Ministry of Finance and DG ECFIN and attended by some 200 participants plus a number of journalists. Speakers included Mugur Isarescu, Governor, NBR; Gheorghe Ialominianu, Minister of Finance; Elena Flores, Director, DG ECFIN; Theodor Stolojan, MEP; Daniel Dăianu, former Finance Minister of Romania and Hans Martens, European Policy Centre. The theme was highly topical in the run-up to the reform of EU economic governance. Interventions and debate addressed this issue in an EU as well as in a Romanian perspective. Back-to-back with the conference, a meeting of the Directors of Communication in the ministries of finance and central banks of the EU Member States and the Euro Team members was held on 9 June. At this meeting, EU economic governance was discussed from a communication point of view. The video features short interviews with key figures and participants from both events and informal interviews with members of the public.
