Open Europe and OMFIF are pleased to invite you to mark the launch of Six Days in September: Black Wednesday, Brexit and the making of Europe by William Keegan, David Marsh and Richard Roberts, on 15 September 2017.
Six Days in September revisits the tumultuous political and economic event of 'Black Wednesday' – 16 September 1992 – when Britain was forced to withdraw sterling from the exchange rate mechanism of the European Monetary System.
This meeting considers the wider implications of the events of 1992 – and of 2016, marked by the UK's divisive referendum to leave the European Union – for the international monetary system, as well as the impact on Asia, where many policy-makers saw the European upheavals as presaging the 1997 financial crisis.
Speakers at the launch include:

Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz, Governor, Bank Negara Malaysia (2000-16)
Jacques de Larosière, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund (1978-87); Governor, Banque de France (1987-93); President, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (1993-98)
Sir Tom Scholar, Permanent Secretary, HM Treasury
Sir Paul Tucker, Deputy Governor, Bank of England (2009-13); Private Secretary to the Governor of Bank of England (1989-92)
Lord (Andrew) Turnbull, Principal Private Secretary to the UK Prime Minister (1988-92); Head of Monetary Department, HM Treasury (1992-95); Permanent Secretary, HM Treasury (1998-2002); Cabinet Secretary (2002-05)
