Over the last decade Portugal has gone from crisis to sustained recovery. The recent experience of the Portuguese economy illustrates how over time, structural changes both at national and European levels coalesced to generate positive results – though many challenges remain. Minister Centeno, who since January 2018 also serves as President of the Eurogroup, will share his reflections on Portugal’s unique recovery during the era of austerity, as well as consider lessons from the US experience as a monetary union that could be relevant for the EU.
