Dr David Howarth was invited to speak at a high level panel discussion on Germany and the Financial Crisis. This took place in Berlin a couple of weeks ago (28 May) and was hosted in part by the Canadian Embassy.

The other panel members were Jochen Sanio (the head of Bafin, the German equivalent of the FSA) and Thomas Fricke (Economics editor for the Financial Times Deutscheland). 

Both Canada and Germany have been at the forefront of international efforts to coordinate a response to the global financial crisis. The economics panel featured government and business leaders from both countries and sought to discuss key challenges for governments and economic actors on the eve of the G8 and G20 summits.
