Paris, 20 November 2018 – The future of Europe
Enrico Letta, President of the Jacques Delors Institute, participates in the closing seminar on the “Future of Europe” cycle organized by the Fondation Prospective et Innovation.
To close the cycle of meetings on Europe conducted since the beginning of 2018, the Fondation Prospective et Innovation in collaboration with the firm Allen & Overy are organizing a closing seminar on Tuesday, November 20, 2018.
While Europe is again at a crossroads, the Foundation has sought to contribute to the deepening of the reflection on the future of Europe. This reflection was built on the occasion of breakfasts bringing together our partners, including decision-makers and leading executives of French companies, around a European personality, but also during a trip to Brussels, European executive capital .
This cycle began with a breakfast with HE Ambassador of Spain on January 16, 2018, and with HE Ambassador of Hungary on March 7, 2018, with HE Ambassador of Germany on March 14, 2018, with HE the Ambassador of Sweden on May 17, 2018 and finally HE Ambassador of the United Kingdom on June 1, 2018.
The seminar is opened by Jean-Pierre Raffarin, former Prime Minister and President of the Fondation Prospective et Innovation and Jean-Claude Rivalland, Partner at Allen & Overy.
Two round tables are held next:
– one on the theme “What Europe tomorrow?“, in the presence of Jean-Pierre Chevènement, former minister, Christian Saint-Etienne, economist and academic, and Martine Méheut, president of Citoyennes pour l’Europe;
– the other on the theme “The EU in the world“, in the presence of Enrico Letta, Jean-Louis Beffa, former CEO of Saint-Gobain, Wim Dejonghe, Senior Partner at Allen & Overy.
