Ambassador Raffaele Trombetta intervened at IAI Conference on the Role of the G7 for Global Macroeconomic Stability
Macroeconomic policy coordination, international trade, global financial stability: these were the issues at the core of the research project promoted by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI), which saw the participation of leading economics think tanks from G7 countries.
The French Centre d’Études Prospectives et d’Informations Internationales (CEPII), the British Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), the Canadian Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Japanese Institute for International Affairs (JIIA), the German Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW), and the American Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) answered the call made by the IAI to elaborate papers analyzing the major challenges for global macroeconomic stability, by putting particular emphasis on the role the G7 can play to tackle them.
The papers were presented during the three working sessions – one on macroeconomic policy coordination, one on international trade and one on global financial stability – of the conference that was held on 27-28 march in Rome.
The Italian Sherpa, Ambassador Raffaele Trombetta, gave the final remarks, in which he provided an overview of the program and the priorities of the Italian G7 Presidency, with particular reference to economic and financial issues, highlighting the broad converge between the latter and the themes chosen for the research project promoted by the IAI.
