The IMF’s Christine Lagarde is in Brussels on January 28 to talk about jobs and growth in Europe.
The good news is growth is finally picking up in the euro area as it is slowly emerging from the deep recession. But nearly 20 million people are unemployed.
The most effective way of boosting jobs is to get growth going again.
The IMF has a new book that analyzes today’s challenges head-on and proposes a roadmap for the continent’s recovery.
Christine Lagarde will discuss the book along with Wolfgang Schäuble, Finance Minister of Germany, and Luis de Guindos, Minister of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain. The event will be chaired by Fabian Zuleeg, Chief Executive of the European Policy Centre.
