This conference will address a series of issues that are evolving as the euro moves into a new critical stage of development. Specific topics to be discussed include the impact of the euro on Europe's own macroeconomic performance (inflation, growth, interest rates, etc.); the impact of the euro on global currency and financial markets; and the integration of European financial services, which are creating new centers of services with a global competitive reach. Of particular interest is determining the future evolution of the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate.

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.
