Download: Audio, Video, Transcript

Speaker(s): Herman Van Rompuy

Recorded on 7 September 2011 in Old Theatre, Old Building.

In this speech, the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, will draw the political lessons from the sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone. To what extent do the 17 countries sharing a single currency -- and the 27 sharing the world's largest market -- need to move forward together? The speech will be followed by a Q & A session.

Herman Van Rompuy is the first long-term president of the European Council. Trained as an economist and philosopher at Louvain University, President Van Rompuy served as Belgian's Prime-Minister (2008-2009), Speaker of the Belgian Lower House (2007-2008) and Budget Minister (1993-1999).
