Presentation of the Report: “Growth and the Euro after Brexit“

Tuesday, 20 September 2016, 12:00-13:15 Uhr

Allianz Forum (Conference room, 4th floor), Pariser Platz 6, 10117 Berlin

The event will be held in English. You are warmly invited to a lunch reception after the discussion.

The Euro is vulnerable and needs urgent reform; otherwise it won’t survive the next crisis. Doubts about the future of the Euro are slowing down growth. Brexit has added to the uncertainties. If a federal solution is not possible right now, then an intergovernmental approach should still be taken, followed by further integration later on. We don’t know whether the next crisis will hit in six weeks, six months, or six years. But the time to act is now.

You are cordially invited to the presentation of the Report by a high-level Working Group on the future of Economic and Monetary Union in Europe. The Report proposes measures to trigger reforms and investment in Europe, to shift euro-area stabilization from the ECB back to governments, to enhance legitimacy and ownership of EU economic governance, and to thus to prepare Europe for further risk sharing and sovereignty sharing in a more deeply integrated monetary union in the longer term.

The Report will be published on 20 September 2016 and some of the members of the Group will be in Berlin on that day to present its proposals.


Henrik Enderlein (coordinator of the report), Director of the Jacques Delors Institut – Berlin; Associate Dean and Professor of Political Economy, Hertie School of Governance 

Enrico Letta (coordinator of the report), President of the Jacques Delors Institute in Paris; Dean of the Paris School of International Affairs

Aart De Geus (member of the working group), Chairman and CEO, Bertelsmann Stiftung
