YOU ARE ALL INVITED AT”Perspectives on the Global Financial Crisis and the State of the European Economy”

Thursday, October 27, 6:00-8:00pm
25 Broadway, New York, NY
Global financial markets have recently been in turmoil, in part due to Europe’s debt problems and large budget deficits. Greece, Ireland, Spain and Portugal and Italy struggle to maintain control of their sovereign debt with unpopular budget cuts and austerity measures. The default of any of these countries’ debt could resonate on corporations around the world and threatens to bring some of world’s major economies back into a recession. Economic growth forecasts of key European countries such as France and Germany have already been reduced while the United States, Europe’s major trading partner, faces its own economic challenges. Please join us at this timely event as we discuss Europe’s sovereign debt crisis and its implications on investments, corporations and the global economy.

Moderated by Lori Bittner, Director of the Deloitte Federal Services and Emerging Markets, Deloitte Consulting LLP, this discussion will feature:

§ Georges Pineau, Permanent Representative to the International Monetary Fund, European Central Bank, Washington DC

§ Antonio de Lecea, Minister for economic and financial affairs and principal advisor to the Head of the Delegation of the European Commission in Washington, D.C.

§ Gianluca Clementi, Professor, Department of Economics, Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University

§ Additional speakers may join the panel (TBD)

Topics on the agenda will include:

§ State of the current financial markets in the Eurozone
§ Current budget deficits of European countries facing debt problems, such as Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain
§ Latest steps and measures taken to resolve Europe’s debt challenges and stimulate economic growth
§ Implications on investments and corporations in both Europe and the United States
§ Outlook for the global economy and key challenges ahead
