After three difficult years, Europe seems to have turned the corner on the severe economic crisis. The imminent breakup of the Euro now seems unlikely. Borrowing costs are decreasing, stock markets are improving, and a slow but steady stabilization of the region’s banking system is underway.
However, robust economic growth remains far off – current forecasts put it at just 0.1 percent in 2013 for the 17-nation Eurozone. The European business community is hoping that President Obama's second term will bring the growth that European companies so urgently need to counteract dismal national economies.
Despite the rise of China as a trading partner, the U.S. remains the biggest market for European exports. Leadership discussions between the EU and the US over the next fours years will also include eliminating barriers to trans-Atlantic trade, committing to multilateralism, and negotiating a deal with Iran.
BAIA invites you to join the Consuls General of five major European countries for a discussion on the trans-Atlantic relationship in this critical economic and political juncture at this extraordinary event.
Event is SOLD OUT. No unregistered guests or walk-ins will be admitted to the event.
