             Specific topics to be discussed include the impact of the euro on
             Europe's own macroeconomic performance (inflation, growth,

             and financial markets; and the integration of European financial
             services, which are creating new centers of services with a global

             future evolution of the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate.

      BACKGROUND:
             In the sixth year since its debut as a common currency, the euro
             is rapidly moving to a new stage of institutional development
             where it is now poised to play a role as the "other" great
             currency in the world.  This is of particular importance in an era
             of dynamic globalization where traders and investors are looking
             to regional growth centers like the European community to provide
             expanded investment opportunity, strong institutional legitimacy
             and long term currency stability.
 
             But moving to this new stage presents a whole series of unique
             challenges to and pressures on the managers of the euro system.
             For one, the successful integration of new member states into the
             European Union is of paramount institutional importance.  For
             another, there is the constant challenge of signaling world
             financial markets that the euro will indeed continue as the major
             stable currency of confidence in Europe.  For more information on
