During their New York visit on July 11, 2013, members of the European People’s Party sat down for lunch with EACC NY. A select group of member firm executives discussed U.S. monetary & fiscal policy, responses to the Euro crisis, financial market reform, the FTT, as well as global governance  & global monetary imbalances.

The European People’s Party makes up 271 members of the European Parliament, 13 of the European Commissioners, and 13 heads of state for countries in the European Union.

In line with the official party standpoint that “transatlantic relations are a cornerstone of our [EU] external policy and must be strengthened,” this luncheon provided a valuable platform for the exchange of ideas between invited participants and the MEPs present.
