General view of the Plenary chamber in Brussels - PHS Hemicycle - Plenary session week 46 2014

Pierre Moscovici at the London School of Economics

Join us on 18 December from 18:30 in the Shaw Library at the London School of Economics for a lecture from Pierre Moscovici, the EU Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs.

If 2016 was the year in which populism swept Britain and America, 2017 saw the populists defeated—albeit narrowly—in some key European elections. As we look ahead to 2018, Moscovici warns that the war against nationalists and anti-European populists is far from over.

In this speech, the EU Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs, will set out his political priorities for the coming year which will see key decisions by EU leaders on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union; further moves to boost tax transparency and reform corporate taxation in the wake of the Paradise Papers, and the conclusion of Greece’s financial assistance programme after more than seven years.
