As most economies are emerging from the pandemic, the 2021 year will be the most important of the decade and will reshape the destiny of the future generations.

Central banks and governments will take critical decisions to revive economies left with permanent damages, higher indebtedness, social uncertainties but also with new opportunities.

To succeed, policy makers will have to demonstrate their willingness to pursue international cooperation and their ability to maintain government support in coordination with innovative monetary strategies.

CFA Society France is pleased to welcome Jean-Claude Trichet, Governor of the European Central Bank between 2003 and 2011, to share his views on the political, economic and monetary choices in light of the new turn the European project is taking.

This is the first event from the newly launched Macroeconomics Series Committee led by Sarah Carlson, CFA and Tristan Perrier, CFA.
