Interview with Jens Weidmann published in the newspapers of the Leading European Newspaper Alliance on 17 May 2016

In a joint interview with newspapers from the Leading European Newspaper Alliance (LENA), he said that this time should be used to implement reforms and consolidation measures. Otherwise, central banks would come under pressure to keep interest rates low in order to ensure sustainable public finances. Mr Weidmann argued that, in such a scenario, they would have to withstand this pressure.
