Davos 2011

In the spirit of tradition this year too euinside will follow the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in the Swiss resort Davos. As in 2010, this year too we will benefit from the new technologies in order to follow the debates remotely (on-line), and not on the spot. Although this year the question "What is the purpose of Davos"? will be as valid as last year, it is a fact that the World Economic Forum gathers together the economic and political elite which, especially against the backdrop of the global challenges, is interesting by itself.

The crisis in the euro area, the threat of currency wars, the impressive economic development in south-east Asia, the problems in the US, the emerging markets, food prices volatility, the prices of main raw materials, the fast growing population of the planet. All these are challenges which all of us will face - politicians, economists, business, citizens. This is why the opinion of the influential people is always of significance. So, follow euinside so that you could get the main news, analyses and positions in depth in the next 5 days.

On the occasion of his visit today in #Greece #Russia President Vladimir #Putin has published in the English-language Kathimerini daily a detailed op-ed where he makes, as it seems, an 'indecent proposal' to the EU: "I am convinced we should draw appropriate conclusions from the events in Ukraine and proceed to establishing, in the vast space stretching between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, a zone of economic and humanitarian cooperation based on the architecture of equal and indivisible security". The text does not make it clear whether Mr Putin is proposing the EU and Russia to distribute in a Crimean way the territories in this "vast space" or he means everyone to forget the Ukrainian developments for the sake of mutually beneficial economic cooperation. Further on in the op-ed the Russian president reminds Europe that it is facing a growing competition from "other power centres in the contemporary world" pointing to the Pacific region where the US has strong interests.

The #IMF has published its debt sustainability report on #Greece with new projections and proposals ahead of the key #Eurogroup meeting today which is expected to bridge the differences with the euro area on the restructuring of the Greek debt. According to the IMF, the proposed by the Eurogroup measures, like extension of maturities and payment deferrals would not be sufficient, therefore it is proposing also fixing interest rates. These three measures combined would reduce the Greek debt by 53% of GDP by 2040, the Fund believes. You can read the entire report here euinsi.de/Pwwo

#bpw16 #Austria in the end will not have a far right president. The next head of state will be the independent Alexander Van der Bellen. After a close race, the end of which was defined by the votes sent via mail, the far right candidate Nobert Hofer has conceded defeat. This, however, does not mean an end to the far right tendencies in Europe
