Geithner to Meet Schaeuble, Draghi in Germany Next Week
The meeting with Schaeuble will take place on the German island of Sylt in the afternoon of July 30, and the session with Draghi will be held that evening in Frankfurt, the Treasury Department said in a statement today.
The Treasury said the meetings will be closed to the press, with a photo opportunity before the Schaeuble meeting. A Treasury official with knowledge of the matter said that Geithner and Schaeuble won’t hold a news conference after the meeting.
European stocks rose for an eighth week as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande joined Draghi in promising to do everything to protect the euro.
“France and Germany are fundamentally attached to the integrity of the euro zone,” Merkel and Hollande said in a joint statement today. “They are determined to do everything to protect it.”
The leaders of the euro area’s two biggest economies issued their statement a day after Draghi said that the central bank will act to preserve the euro.
