On April 21, the Global Economy and Development program at Brookings hosted EIB President Werner Hoyer for a speech and conversation on Europe’s growth outlook and the future of the European Union. Hoyer reflected on the institutional turning point that the EU is experiencing at the moment, the theme of the recent European Commission’s White Paper on the Future of the Union. The EIB’s role as the EU Bank, in the Juncker Plan, in boosting investment and productivity in Europe, and in supporting the Sustainable Development Goals and climate financing globally will also be covered.

After Hoyer’s speech, Homi Kharas, senior fellow and co-director for the Global Economy and Development program, engaged Hoyer in a conversation.
