Joan Tapia (Barcelona) | Spain has lost out in the Eurogroup, but only by 10 to 9 and with the vote in favour of the powerful Franco-German axis. It is an honourable defeat that indicates our limitations. Some claim that the result is due to the fact Spain has a government with communist participation, something anomalous in Europe. I think that it is a warning from the medium-sized countries to the Franco-German axis to take them more into account. Spain is not gaining influence in Europe, but it will have little impact on economic policy.
Nadia calviño eurogroup
Mario Centeno is leaving his post as Portugal’s finance minister, opening the door for a new leader of the Eurogroup. Spanish Economy Minister, Nadia Calviño, is one of the favourites to replace the Centeno, along with the Finance Ministers of Luxembourg, Pierre Gramegna and Ireland, Paschal Donohoe.
