Future of the euro area: navigating uncertainty

Future of the euro area: navigating uncertainty

Seminar   Paris   
  Wed 5 Oct 2022 08:00 - 13:00

The rapidly changing post-Covid-19 economic landscape has shown that European economies need to show resilience and flexibility in navigating the challenging combination of macroeconomic shocks and structural issues impacting growth and inflation.

This high-level seminar will discuss policy responses to rising inflation in the euro area, which continues to reflect surging energy and food prices, exacerbated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Further topics include the smooth and even transmission of monetary policy across the euro area, the pace of the green transition and central bank strategies, practices and toolkits for stimulating growth and enhancing public understanding of monetary policies.
