Reuters President and Editor-in-Chief, Steve Adler, will engage Constâncio in a wide range of topics, including the ECB’s efforts to rebuild confidence after the currency union’s near collapse in 2015, the bank’s desperate fight to boost inflation, the euro area’s near-stagnation and the legacy of a banking crisis that could hold back growth for years to come. Facing a renewed prospect of deflation, the ECB has promised to review its policy stance and possibly unroll further unconventional measures as soon as March.
Constâncio, a former Portuguese Finance Minister and Central Bank Governor, has served as the ECB’s number two since 2010, playing a key role in fulfilling ECB President Mario Draghi’s promise to do “whatever it takes” to preserve the euro and saving Greece from collapse. A former Professor of Economics, Constancio also served as Portugal’s Central Bank Governor from 2000 to 2010 and is well known for his in-depth understanding of economic history and theory.
For this program we are delighted to cooperate with the European American Chamber of Commerce New York.
