European View Q2, 2010
How Sustainable is Europe's Recovery?
The recession has shed a crude light on the divergences and the imbalances within the Euro Area. Current account deficit countries are now the focus point of the sovereign debt market. Being one of the biggest, Spain will be key in implementing the fiscal retrenchment and the structural reforms needed to re-balance the zone.
Join us for our quarterly examination of the European business cycle and outlook. This 30 minute webcast offers executives timely insights into the European operating environment, including the latest data from The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for the Euro Area and nine other countries/regions.
During this session, there will be ample time to raise questions directly with our economist by telephone or online via Adobe Connect
