Europe’s economies seem stuck in a trap of rising taxes, rising debt, and low growth (if it exists at all). What is the answer to this dilemma? How can finance ministers cut their deficits and promote growth? Our panel (and the audience) will discuss this central problem that bedevils the continent.

11.00 – 12.30 Wednesday 29th May

LOCATION: Fondation Universitaire, Rue d’Egmont 11, 1000 Brussels
