Vice-Presidents Ambroise Fayolle, Andrew McDowell and Chief Economist Debora Revoltella joined thought leaders at the 2-day “Global Implications of Europe’s Redesign” conference in New York on EU-US economic trends. They have been laying out the key role of the European Investment Bank.    

VP Ambroise Fayolle delivered a key note speech at the event which was organised in partnership with the EIB, Columbia University’s Center on Global Economic Governance, SUERF- The European Money and Finance Forum and Societe Generale. It has brought together policymakers, technical experts and leading practitioners.

Delivering his speech, “Next steps toward an innovative Europe”, VP Fayolle said, “I dare say that a projected investment of well over a half-trillion euros should not be called a step. It is, in fact, a great leap. By the time that leap is completed, Europe’s economy will look very different to the way it does today. I am confident that we shall have a good landing.”
