Yves

Bertoncini, Secrétaire

Général de Notre Europe, participera au 2eme Belgrade Security Forum sur le théme

« Coping with the crisis: Challenges

to democracy and security », du 20 au 22 Septembre 2012, Hotel Hyatt

Regency, Milentija Popovica 6, Belgrade, Serbia.

Mr Bertoncini will participate in the Session 7: Fighting financial crisis: the Eurozone and beyond, debating following topics:

• The financial crisis spreading across Eurozone countries have emerged

into an urgent problem for policy and decision makers. One of the most

important questions emerged is Can the Eurozone be saved or is it too big to

bail?

• Additional questions that still instigate wider debate are should Europe

move ahead with deeper political integration process or establish rules that

would simulate a “fiscal union?” Is fiscal union the key to resolving the

exposure of the Eurozone to debt crisis?

• Whether introducing Eurobonds and expanding the Eurozone’s bailout fund

would be sufficient and long lasting solution? How to conduct efficiently

Europe-wide bank recapitalization?

• Addressing the Eurozone’s deeper defects cannot be postponed endlessly

therefore is the solution: founding a comprehensive system of economic

governance and enhanced powers for the ECB so that it can act as a lender of

last resort?

• In the longer term, how can radical reforms in capital, product, and

labor markets aimed at boosting competitiveness and restoring growth prospects

in the EU be effectively implemented?
