The ESADE Alumni Community of Valencia Club is pleased to invite you to this Refresher Programme talk entitled ''Spain and the EU in a year of uncertainty'' by Professor David Vegara of ESADE’s Department of Economics, Finance and Accounting.
Several factors will affect the economic outlook of Spain and the EU in 2017. In the EU the tailwinds of recent years will die down and lead, paradoxically, to calmer times that may hamper the will for greater integration at a time when countless question marks hang over the common project. Populisms are on the march, and Brexit and the new US administration are ushering in elements of uncertainty that may put the governance of multilateral institutions to the test. On the domestic scene, Spain should continue along the road to recovery, but probably at a slower pace due to the need to rein in its public accounts. A great deal of work still remains to be done in this sphere – in sharp contrast with the apparent lack of focus in the public debate. Against this backdrop, public leadership faces the not inconsiderable challenge of making growth and job creation tally with this fiscal adjustment.
The talk will examine all these factors against the backdrop of the year that has just begun – a year in which politics will probably play a more decisive role than was expected a few months ago.
See you there!
