Is the Global Economy Still in Crisis?

Come 13th January 2011, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will be inviting Dr Jacques Attali – a French economist, professor, author of over 50 books, and Honorary Member of the Council of State, to share his thoughts on the recovery of the Global Economy.

Dr Jacques Attali is the founder and the first President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and named by the US Foreign Policy magazine as one of the top 100 public intellectuals in the World.

This topic is near and dear to many of us, whether you own a business, or you are employed – even though the the Asian countries were less affected by the international crisis.

So, what of the future, in a world where there is little prospect of growth in the large economies of the US and major European countries? Can Europe provide economic leadership for the future?

Come pose your questions and get them answered by Dr Jacques Attali, at this public talk organised by ASEF! Registration details can be found on the ASEF website.
