15/05/2008 - 16/05/2008 : Brussels Economic Forum 2008

Economic and Monetary Union in Europe: 10 Years On

Ten years after the landmark decisions which led to the launch of the euro and the creation of a monetary union in Europe, this year's Forum was dedicated to an assessment of what Economic and Monetary Union had achieved so far and what challenges it would face. It included sessions on growth and adjustment in the euro area, the euro and global financial markets, euro-area governance, and the medium-term challenges for Economic and Monetary Union.

The Forum also provided an excellent opportunity for policy makers and academics to debate issues that currently figure prominently on the EU and international agenda, such as recent financial market developments and their possible implications for Europe.
