As the eurozone crisis intensifies and the European Council prepares to take up the Euro Plus Pact at its all-important December summit, The 2011 Euro Summit convened under the theme of Towards Fiscal Sustainability and Increased Competitiveness. Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, delivered a fascinating and powerful keynote, highlighting the need for restoring European competitiveness to overcome the crisis.

In addition, Martin Larch, head of unit for co-ordination of country-specific policy surveillance at DG economic and financial affairs of the European Commission; Alessandro Leipold, chief economist of the Lisbon Council and former acting director of the European Department at the IMF; and Peter Spiegel, Brussels bureau chief of Financial Times, joined a high-level panel discussion on Europe Beyond the Crisis.
