Europe at a crossroads: ECB Vice-President Luis de Guindos
At the end of May, voters from the 28 EU nations will head to the polls to elect a new European Parliament with global trade ructions, a precarious economy, Brexit and other immediate risks on their minds. Join us for a fireside chat with one of the Eurozone’s leading central bankers to discuss the outlook for growth, investment and European integration.
Luis de Guindos vice-president of the European Central Bank since June 2018, will sit down with Rob Cox, global editor of Reuters Breakingviews in New York. The discussion will precede by just a few weeks what may be one of the most eventful elections in the history of the European Parliament. The outcome of this year’s vote will help determine the future leadership of the European Commission, the European Council and who runs the eurozone’s central bank at a pivotal moment for the region’s monetary and fiscal policy.
Mr. de Guindos previously served as Spain’s former Minister of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness. Prior to that, Mr. de Guindos was head of financial services at PricewaterhouseCoopers, director at IE Business School and PwC’s center for the finance sector, and chief executive officer Iberia at Lehman Brothers and Nomura Securities. His experience in government and the private sector gives him unique insight into the wider impact that politics can have on jobs, wages, prices and policies in the real economy.
