The Centre for European Studies, the official think-tank of the European People’s Party, will hold their third annual Economic Ideas Forum in Dublin Castle, from the 19th-20th April 2012. It is being hosted by the Taoiseach, and is organised in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
The Forum will gather senior politicians from the European Union institutions, national ministers and heads of government, top academics and influential stakeholders. The very impressive programme, available here, includes John Bruton, former Taoiseach and former EU Ambassador to the US, Thomas Spiller, Vice-President at the Walt Disney Company, Wilifred Martens, President of the EPP and former Prime Minister of Belgium, Peter Spiegel, Brussels Bureau Chief for the Financial Times, and of course, an Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who is also a Vice-President of the European People’s Party.
The discussion will tackle themes ranging from Europe and the world economy, economic governance, Single Market and growth and EU-US shared economic challenges- all extremely important and relevant topics.
