Euro Group - Members


Eurogroup members as of July 2013. The ECB President, Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner and Chairman of the Eurogroup Working Group also attend the meetings. It is worthwhile to note that the members of the EU who choose not to participate in the Euro (UK, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Denmark, etc.) have been excluded from observer status. The membership is very fluid. For example, IMF personnel such as Christine Lagarde are sometimes allowed to be present at meetings—see Lagarde statement 20130316. What remains unknown about this very ad-hoc group is whether they allow observers to speak or speech by the observers is forbidden.

Famous quotes containing the word members:

    A commercial society whose members are essentially ascetic and indifferent in social ritual has to be provided with blueprints and specifications for evoking the right tone for every occasion.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    I understand that only the rich can be members of Dr. C---’s church. The Lord Christ, also, is therefore ineligible. I will remain outside with Him.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)

    Religion is the centre which unites, and the cement which connects the several parts of members of the political body.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)
