      "This shows how interested we are in European issues!" It's a full house for the Jeroen Dijsselbloem lecture tonight. The former Dutch minister of finance and president of the #eurogroup speaks on the coming of age of a Monetary Union. He looks back at the Eurozone crisis, starting with the establishment of the Euro in Maastricht in 1992, the run-up to the financial crisis, the crisis itself and the measures that were taken to prevent a total breakdown, with Greece leaving the Union. He will give his take on what future lies ahead.
