BIBA September Luncheon Seminar

“The effects of European debt contagion on the stability of the European Union and the Euro”

Presented by Dr. George Buckley, Chief U.K. Economist, Deutsche Bank

The Barbados International Business Association’s September Luncheon will focus on the current debt crisis in the European Union and the problem of contagion for other members and the Union as a whole.

The euro has played a major role in rivaling the U.S. dollar as the world’s major currency. However, the recent turbulence that began in Greece and its potential contagion to Italy and Spain as well as further afield may play a significant role in undermining the euro and shaking the very foundations of the European Union.

This seminar is hosted by Dr. George Buckley and will offer further insight into the situation. As the Chief U.K. Economist for Deutsche Bank, he will be able to share his thoughts on the situation within Europe and the far-reaching effects that the debt contagion may have on an already struggling world economy.
