Conference Objectives!

The Current State of the European Union!

Although recession in the European Union has officially ended, there is a lot more that the 27-member political union has to do in order to reinvigorate the economic activities of the member states. A major segment of EU member countries face critical issues and problems which include high level of government deficit, sovereign debt and jobless recovery. All these issues further aggravate unemployment concerns resulting in inequality among member states. Also, these developments cause greater economic hardship, job losses and social concerns.

Austerity and Bank Lending!

Banks and financial institutions play a very significant role in economic recovery and growth. Of course, companies and SME’s (Small and Medium Enterprises) heavily depend on bank financing. Unfortunately, banks, as a precautionary measure, resort to tight credit and lending policy. On the same note, one should not forget to consider the fact that, in EU, half of exports go to other European countries which again triggers stiff competition among the members. While France and Germany are quite stronger in terms of key economic parameters, other countries such as Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy continue to struggle and are straining every nerve to bring the economic engine back to normal functioning. Obviously, bank lending should take place in order to fuel economic activities. European Central Bank (ECB) has already implemented several far reaching measures and is expected to play a major role in this front with greater initiatives and measures.

Competitiveness – Key to Growth!

By some measures, such as Current Account balances and unit labor costs, it appears that the Eurozone has increased in competitiveness. However, export price-based competitiveness measures seem to suggest, otherwise. Related open questions include the following: How permanent are these changes in competitiveness? What further structural measures are needed to correct imbalances both on the part of the weaker, debtor economies such as Greece and Spain, as well as by stronger, creditor economies, such as Germany and Netherlands?

Economic Momentum – The need of the Hour!

Although economic recovery is fragile, a new approach to growth, employment creation, increase in exports and global trade would help EU regain her past glory back. Reducing ‘trade barriers’ is yet another step to be initiated by the member states. Needless to emphasize that a coordinated action plan would certainly bring growth and prosperity to the EU at a faster pace.

Conference Objectives!

Against this background, the proposed conference would

a) Provide a platform for economists, academicians, policy makers and researchers to share their ideas, insights and research findings to contribute to economic recovery and growth of the EU;

b) Identify and analyze the causes which led the EU to the current state of affairs;

c) Determine the role of banks, financial institutions and various segments of the EU for making tangible contribution to ensure rapid progress of the member nations by creating a conducive investment climate;
d) Encourage collaborative research and networking opportunities for researchers and academicians from across the globe to exchange ideas and knowledge for the betterment of human society, at large.
