Prof. Charles Wyplosz, Professor of International Economics Graduate Institute in Geneva, will, for the first time, participate in the 2013 "Globes" Israel Business Conference. He was recently quoted as saying that, despite signs of recovery in the Eurozone, the worst could still be ahead.
Prof. Wyplosz also serves as Director of the International Centre of Money and Banking Studies at the Graduate Institute in Geneva. He previously served as associate dean for R&D at INSEAD and director of the PhD program in Economics at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Science Sociales in Paris. He has also been director of the International Macroeconomics Programme of CEPR, the leading European network of economists.
Prof. Wyplosz's main research areas include transparency of monetary policy, European monetary integration, fiscal policy discipline, economic transition and current regional integration in various parts of the world. He was a founding managing editor of "Economic Policy". He currently serves on several boards of professional reviews and European research centers, and is a member of the Group of Independent Economic Advisors to the President of the European Commission and the Panel of Experts of the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee. He has advised the Prime Minister of France, the European Commission, the Russian Federation government, the Cypriot government, the UN, IMF, World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and the Inter-American Development Bank.
At the 2013 "Globes" Israel Business Conference, Prof. Wyplosz will participate in the "Open forum: restoring Europe," which will consider whether the Eurozone, despite the progress it has made, can implement the changes and structural reforms needed to achieve sustainable growth, and whether further integration will continue. Other participants in the forum will be former European Central Bank executive board member Dr. Lorenzo Bini Smaghi, "Financial Times" Associate Editor and chief foreign affairs commentator Gideon Rachman, and Prof. Lee C. Buchheit, a partner at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and professor of law at New York University. Bloomberg Television Middle East Editor Elliott Gotkine will be the moderator.
The 2013 "Globes" Israel Business Conference, the country's largest business conference, will be held this year under the title "The Global Economy in 2014". It is Israel's premier and most prestigious economic event, attended by decision-makers, businesspeople, government officials, academics, researchers, spokespersons, and delegations from Israel and around the world. The conference will offer analyses and insights by leading economics and academics, businesspeople, and policymakers from Israel and other countries.
