SOUNDBITE (English) Herman VAN ROMPUY, President of the European Council

The outcome is a strong message in favour of economic growth and jobs. The world economy is performing a lot better than a year ago and the outlook for the Eurozone is much better than a year ago, not so much in terms of growth and jobs, because unemployment remains very high, but in terms of financial stability and the existential threats for Eurozone disappeared. Overall the mood now is more positive than in Los Cabos in Mexico just a year ago.

SOUNDBITE (English) Herman VAN ROMPUY, President of the European Council

Of course each country has its own problems and if the Eurozone is in a better shape, the emerging countries are in a slowing down process, of course with still positive growth, but they are faced with structural problems in their own countries also and that is new. In some way there is some positive news for the advanced economies and more negative news for the emerging economies, although they are still contributing to the world economic growth.
