Invitation to a Breakfast Brief: Europe 2020 – Competitive or Complacent?

January 29 2011
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, Brussels
Speakers: Professor Daniel HamiltonnMEP Gunnar Hökmark
Time: 08:30

It is central to European recovery and fiscal consolidation that growth orbits to a higher trajectory. Yet EU growth forecasts do not make encouraging reading. The recovery has so far been aneamic and the outlook for the next few years is not much brighter. The European Commission estimates growth to be 1.5% this year and 2% in 2012. Clearly, Europe has a structural growth problem and needs to take structural reforms seriously. But what should be the central elements of a new growth and competitiveness agenda?

In a new book Professor Daniel Hamilton – the Executive Director of the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Johns Hopkins University and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs in the US – examines strategies for competitiveness and growth and sets out a new agenda for the EU. Professor Hamilton will present his new study at this breakfast brief, and the presentation will be followed by comments from MEP Gunnar Hökmark, Deputy Chairman of the EPP Group and a leading force in the Parliament for a strong competitiveness agenda.

Sandwiches will be served
