"Europe After the Crisis"
Klaus Regling
Managing Director of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM)
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English

 The dramatic developments in Greek politics and finance have become a global issue with the ascent of the leftist government of Alexis Tsipras and his Syriza Party just one year ago. Many see the fate of the Euro and even the grand project of a more integrated European Union as being implicated in the Greek events.

 Our guest at the FCCJ, Klaus Regling, has been a key negotiator on the European side vis-a-vis the Tsipras government. He is the first Managing Director of the European Stability Mechanism -- the largest creditor to Greece and to all of the debt-troubled countries in Europe.

 His opening speech will be on the theme of "Europe After the Crisis."Regling has painted a more optimistic picture of the prospects for Greek recovery than some other observers, with perhaps his most notable critic being his former antagonist, the previous left-wing finance minister of Greece, Yanis Varoufakis.

 Klaus Regling has worked for forty years as an economist in senior positions in the public and the private sector in Europe, Asia and the United States, including a decade with the IMF in Washington and Jakarta, and a decade with the German Ministry of Finance. From 2001 to 2008 he was Director General for Economic and Financial Affairs of the European Commission.
