World Bank Chief Economist for the Europe and Central Asia Region, Indermit Gill, was in the Netherlands April 2nd and 3rd to present the World Bank's report : Golden Growth: Restoring the Luster of the European Economic Model. The report documents the achievements of the European growth model over the last 50 years, looking specifically at the six principal components of the model: Trade, Finance, Enterprise, Innovation, Labor, and Government. Given the recent changes in and outside Europe, the report proposes the adjustments needed to make trade and finance work even better, to encourage enterprise and innovation in parts of Europe which have begun to lag, and address shortcomings in the functioning of labor markets and governments. Mr. Gill presented the report to staff from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Economic Affairs and Finance, and to analysts and researchers at the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies. He also participated in the University of Leiden's Second Annual Jean Monnet Conference addressing a network of researchers from Leiden University, the Clingendael Institute and the Hague University of Applied Sciences.
