European Commissioner for Competition and Vice-President, European Commission, Brussels Key Note
Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Professor; Director, Center for Transatlantic Relations, SAIS - Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, John Hopkins University, Washington, DC Abstract Key Note
How well is Europe positioned to deal with the competitive and highly connected G20 world? Are Europeans primed to be world-class players? Or are they complacent, failing to meet their challenges while a world of opportunities passes them by? In his recent book Europe 2020 Daniel Hamilton has literally 'mapped' the EU's global links in goods, services, money, energy, people and ideas. He will assess Europe's strengths and weaknesses, chart scenarios for the EU's future, and offer recommendations for decision makers in Europe and around the globe.
