EU's Rehn backs Christine Lagarde for IMF Chief

Speaker: Olli Rehn, Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs, European Union
June 1, 2011

European Union Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs, Olli Rehn, says French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde "would make a very good managing director of the IMF for the whole world, not only for Europe." "The European Union and its member states see that Christine Lagarde, the finance minister of France, has very strong professional qualifications and has earned the respect of her peers as the chairperson of the G20," Rehn said.
