Dr Dennis LeechDr Dennis Leech, Reader in the Economics Department, was recently invited to talk to the European Parliament in Brussels. The Economic and Monetary Affairs committee are currently undertaking work on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank and invited Dr Leech to give his opinion on the coordination of European representation at the IMF.
