Only strong economic growth will help Europe emerge from its crisis. The reforms implemented to date at national and European level have failed to impact the economy positively; this is due to excessive national, corporate, and private debts, weakness of the banking system, the lack of structural reforms, an insufficient institutional framework at European level, as well as a persisting climate of distrust in the stability of economic development. Europe’s biggest economic weaknesses is a lack of private investment. A European investment agenda is vital in order to generate the impetus required to push the European economy towards a sustainable recovery.

The event took place at the European School of Management and Technology on October 6th.
