The Euro Area, and mostly the economies in the periphery, has gone through a difficult phase of fiscal repair and structural reforms. But the bitter medicine seems to have worked, as the systemic euro crisis is history. Most reform countries at the periphery are reaping the rewards of their efforts while the main risks ahead are mostly political rather than economic.

In this webcast, we will be joined by Holger Schmieding, chief economist at Berenberg Bank, an expert on EU economic reforms. How has the economic environment improved over the recent years and which reforms are there still in the pipeline and how does that all affect Europe’s global competitive position and business landscape? Join us for an interactive discussion.
