DOES THE EURO HAVE A FUTURE? EURO DEBATE
Leading Talks and The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry will be hosting Chief Executive Mr Dan O’Brien for a debate on the Euro.
With chronically weak economic growth, a fragile financial system and deep divisions among the currency union’s members over fiscal and monetary policy as well on the role and type of growth-enhancing structural reforms, Europe’s 19-member single currency bloc is in deep trouble. Can stronger growth be achieved, can the flaws in the design of the euro be remedied and, ultimately, can the single currency survive over the longer term?
Opening address Hon Prof Edward Scicluna Minister for Finance. Keynote Speaker Mr Dan O’Brien Chief Economist, Institute of International & Economic Affairs Panellists Mr Michael C Bonello Chairman, Lombard Bank Malta p.l.c Dr Gordon Cordina Executive Director, E-Cubed Consultants Moderators Mr Keith Demicoli PBS Newscaster
