“EUROPE: SHAKEN AND STIRRED? – GREECE: A SKILFUL ACROBAT?”
European citizens are paying close attention to the leadership at the helm of the European Union as they tackle the migrant crisis. The United Nations estimates indicate that over one million people have entered Europe with the intention of claiming asylum. The EU member states now have an opportunity to strengthen their collaboration and solve the refugee question with consistency.
• Will they succeed in overcoming this challenge?
On the economic forefront, we are witnessing EU member states breaking away from economic stagnation and emerging stronger from the crisis. Following Ireland and Portugal, Cyprus intends to be the third Eurozone country to leave the international bailout program this year.
Without a doubt, 2016 is set to be crucial for Greece’s future as the country still faces many challenges to stabilize its economy, maintain the momentum of structural reforms and return to the path of competitiveness and growth after signing a revised programme with its creditors.
• What are the government’s policy priorities for the next coming months and what role will the main opposition play in Greece’s political arena?
Distinguished personalities from around the world will once again join us in this year’s annual 20th Roundtable with the Government of Greece scheduled to take place in Athens on June 22nd-23rd, 2016 to brainstorm, debate and put forward new proposals on all the issues that this high profile event will once again be addressing.
