The meeting, which begins at 4:00 p.m. Athens time, is being held to address the situation in the sovereign debt markets.
It will hold two debates, the first concerning "Monetary and economic policy issues raised by the current situation in the sovereign debt markets" with the President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Jean-Claude Trichet, and the second on "Restoring market confidence: legislative and institutional responses" with the President of the Eurogroup Jean-Claude Juncker, Minister of Finance of Poland (Council Presidency) Jacek Rostowski and Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Olli Rehn.
The aim is to hear from key actors on the steps taken to address the crisis, and to allow ECON Members to express their views as to the priorities for its resolution.
