Central Bank of Malta public lecture on the EU Economy – Today and tomorrow

On Tuesday 7 August 2018, the Central Bank of Malta hosted a public lecture with the theme The EU Economy - Today and tomorrow.

The lecture was introduced by Dr Aaron Grech, the Bank's Chief Economist, and delivered by Mr Reuben Borg. Mr Borg works as an economist at the European Commission's DG ECFIN and helps coordinate the Commission's economic forecasts. He also worked at the European Central Bank, the UK's Government Economic Service, and the Central Bank of Malta. During his career, Mr Borg has worked extensively in the areas of economic modelling and forecasting, monetary policy and financial market analysis. Recently he also served as a senior policy officer and negotiator for the Maltese government during its Presidency of the Council of the EU in 2017.

The lecture gave an overview of the current state of the EU economy, delving into how the situation has evolved since the financial and sovereign debt crises. This narrative provided the background underpinning the economic bloc's prospects for the near term. Mr Borg, in fact, outlined the Commission's latest set of macroeconomic projections and the challenges ahead.

This event was the second in a series of public lectures in economics and finance being hosted by the Bank to commemorate its 50th Anniversary.
