Turbulence continues for bankrupt Air Berlin - Juncker wants all EU members to adopt the euro - The race is on for autonomous driving and electric mobility
In his State of the Union speech, European Commission President Juncker has praised the bloc for "bouncing back" after 10 years of crises. He has outlined bold proposals for the eurozone, trade and migration.
It was an optimistic speech. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sees tailwinds for Europe and has proposed far-reaching reforms. A number of these, says Barbara Wesel, are doomed to fail.
The International Monetary Fund has encouraged eurozone leaders to set up a financial emergency fund. It said such a measure would help cushion member states in times of economic downturns and reassure investors.
