Rencontres Économiques of Washington

The Event

The world is facing an accumulation of crises: after the pandemic, the return of war in Europe and inflation, the threat of recession and the questioning of global value chains. In this context of major upheavals, international relations, in particular between the European Union and the United States, will be crucial to overcome these challenges. This is why the Cercle des économistes and the French Embassy in the United States have joined forces to organize a day of reflection on the major economic and financial issues that the world is about to face.

The conference will be hosted at La Maison Française, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The conference is open to all but registration is required here.
