World Affairs Council of Houston hosts "Economic Statecraft and Europe's Quest for Financial Recovery"

World Affairs Council of Houston

As the European Union countries struggle for economic recovery, policymakers seek solutions from both sides of the Atlantic. What lesson can be taken from the success of countries like Austria, whose GDP is relatively healthy and unemployment rate is the lowest in Europe? What tools of economic statecraft can be used to support the health and growth of Europe and the United States?

Ambassador William C. Eacho III will discuss the essential role of economics in foreign policy and offer insights on how to strengthen international economic policymaking. Eacho currently serves as the United States Ambassador to Austria. Previously, he managed a diverse portfolio of public equity, private equity and real estate investments as CEO of Carlton Capital Group.
