The 2019 edition of the Vigoni-Euroseminar will be taking place in turbulent times. Geopolitical developments – China’s expansion, trade wars, and growth worries – are aggravating European problems. These problems stem mostly from populist reactions to job fears and led to heavy challenges for European policymakers, amongst them Brexit, and governance problems between Italy and “Brussels”. In addition, elections to the European Parliament may fraught with a difficult and prolonged search for a new leadership in the European Union.
Participants in the Seminar are invited to ponder these issues and consider ways to deal with them. Attention will be directed to the euro area’s stability, particularly in light of the vulnerability of European banks to sovereign debt issues. In addition, participants might wish to discuss how European banks are being challenged by global developments.
Among the speakers present at the Euro-Workshop 2019 there will be Commissioner Günther Oettinger (Juncker Commission 2014-2019) responsible for Budget & Human Resources.
